What depth are you at? I was thinking about trying hand traps this weekend with the kids, worth my time? Or are they way deep? Or not in the rivers yet?

Thanks for the info!

Glad you are doing well. Hopefully they will come up north and we will be allowed to go out.

Still plenty crabs. Looks like the main school of crabs are hanging off Back River and the Windows in 20 to 25 ft water. Crabs are moving up the Bay. I see a few school crabs in the pots. The local crabs have been caught up. I feel off 10 bu yesterday.
