Only caught two this morning it seems like I'm catching fewer and fewer every year . I'm starting to think they're  getting fished out.

These are the crabs I used to catch in my Lobster traps.
Are they LadyCrabs or Jonah Crabs?
Are these what you are calling Rock Crabs?

I alwys called Rock Crabs those small Asian invasives we use for Blackfish bait!

What you have there are Jonah crabs, Atlantic rock crabs are smaller and a darker reddish pink shell, Blackfish fisherman here lump them together and call them "white" crabs, and use them for bait.

I'm seeing more Jonah crabs this year then in quite a while, they come into the bay from the ocean with the colder water.The claws are good, the body meat is so so IMO.
