Got down to the area right after sunrise.  We wanted to crab the outgoing tide.  I had my 6 traps and skikid had his 9.  With our success from last week and an additional 9 traps, we were both sure that we were gonna limit quickly.  15 traps, we'll limit quick.  That was when Charlie Murphy showed up...

So we started off with 4 real nice rusty crab on the first run.  Not great but ok, good quality.  For the next few hours we would get 1 or 2 or none per run.  We had to chip away all morning and into the afternoon before we hit our 2 man limit of 50 crab.  In the end, we managed the limit with some real nice crab up to 7.75".   It just took a long time.  Still, it was a great day on the water.

Great looking crabs

At the end of the day, it's not about how many fish or crabs you put in the cooler but about how many memories you put in your life and the lives of your "mates".

A little fluke in the trap is always exciting!

Nice report! We went to Wareham for the first time around 10am on that day and tried to catch crabs using snap traps from the pier, but ended up no catch...
Could you give me any advice/suggestions??

Thanks!

well, it was pretty slow that day.  it took us 7 hours to get 50.   you might want to try hand lining.  get a net on a long pole and set out a few hand lines baited with drumsticks.  when  you get a crab on the line, wade out up to your knees and pull it in very slowly.  when itís close, lift it up off the bottom and net it. 

just keep trying.

Thank you very much! We'll try hand lines next time!

7 hours, 15 traps, 50 crabs.  That's 0.47619 crabs per hour per trap.  So glad we're not the commercial crabbers!  Grin

With 15 traps it must be non stop pulling! Seems like a lot of work Smiley
I have 10 traps, but only put out 5 or 6 at most..I donít need too many crabs..a dozen or so does me good..
