This is a week late report, but I had to finish the video.  I ended up catching 3/4 of a bushel off of my kayak.  The baby crabs were out in force, destroying  chicken necks at a lighting pace.  My most productive depths were 4 to 6 feet of water.  Not much catching in depths above 10 feet... at least in this river.  I used 600 feet of chicken necks and 200 feet of razor clams.  Both baits caught crabs, but the short razor clam line out preformed  the longer chicken neck trot line.

Great vid. Kayak crabbing is a blast and trot lining more so. Can be a PIA but satisfying if you can net some keepers.
Thanks for sharing

Just curious, do kayak crabbers have to pull in to shore to cull their catch?  Or is it possible to do it on the water?

We can do both, it depends on different factors.  Good open cockpit helps.  If I am near a shoreline I can use I will.  If not, I can set up so I can cull right in my yak.

It is a barrel that you can get from a Pepsi Plant used.  Then you cut it in  half and you get two barrels for two boats.  I know some people ordered new ones online for around $25-$30.

I have a PA 12 Enough room to cull crabs in a 5 gallon bucket up front and turn around and dump keepers in the bushel basket in back. 5 gallon bucket also used to store 300' trotline

I use a Kaku Wahoo 12.6, here is my set up.  The black behind my seat is 30 ring traps with lines and floats.  A square plastic clothes basket in the front to hold my keepers has a wire hinged lid.  Towel to wet and keep them shaded and cool.  Inside the basket is the office trash can I hold between my legs to put crabs in untill I cull them.

I am planning on coming over with maybe two other kayaks on the Saturday.  September is always busy for me, but I have put aside some time to come on over....
