Went out around 9am and hit some creeks with the trotlines while our 6 pots soaked.  The pots did very poorly with only about 6 keeper crabs in the pots all day.  The trotlines did well and we ended up with very close to a bushel after 7 hours.   Most were 5.5" - 6" with a couple of 7" plus in the mix.  One stud at 8.5".  All Jimmy crabs.   We had to work to find where they were and moved numerous times but once we did we found an area holding a lot and we caught most of the crabs from a single 1000 yard section of creek.   Depth seemed to make no difference as we ran from 3' to 10' deep in that area and anywhere we put the line we had crabs.   Outgoing tide was better than the incoming but still good.
