Great to hear about a great catch this early.  I am guessing ths was the lower lower eastern shore.  From the data on the smartbuoy site, it seems we don't have decent water temp or salinity until you get close to point lookout.  Some detail on depth, temp and bait would be nice.

Depth ranked from 6 feet to about 14 feet. Had 12 traps with chicken necks. Water temperature up in the creeks was 74*. Been that tempature for a few weeks now.

I'll say it. 

1)  If that creek has been at 74* for "a few weeks now", it'll be in the 90's by the end of June.  Lethal for the crabs.  Catch 'em while you can.

2)  87 crabs on 12 traps?   In 6 - 14 feet? Huh Huh  It's early May, bro.  You're a phenom.

I would love to believe that this was a legit catch, Pier, but.....

If I would have caught 87 crabs in May, my picture would have been of the packed bushel, not five pre-cleaned bodies on a newspaper. But that's just me.

depending on how far south on the eastern shore i wouldnt count it out.  its mostly 2s right now, but they are doing ok down south from what im hearing.  just arent catchong quality.

believe it or not, crabs wont LIVE in that hot of water, but they can be caught there.  i regularly catch crabs im 1-3 ft of water in aug-Oct.  I heard from a wise crabber that crabs will sometimes gravitate to shallow water because of oxygen flow or something like that
