Crabbed 730-130 in back of Fortescue with old necks and frozen bunker. This was my worst trip in 40 years.Destroyed a brand new topless trap,horseshoe crabs and turtles were relentless and never really got on the crab.Wound up with a dozen keepers but between the gnats and black flies,it wasn't worth the effort.Water temps are up to 72 but muddy as could be.

You did what had to be done and that is respected.  yes the fringe areas of the season often do suck.   But I respect those who try and are honest when sh*t happens not in a good way.

Thinking of trying up by me Thursday.  Perhaps no flies.   The No See'ms were heavy in Keyport Saturday night.

On a side note ?
Is there a place to put a kayak in on the creek side of the bridge where the marina is
I've put a boat in at the ramp but I don't want to use the ramp for the yak, just curious
& is it good crabbing on the other side of the bridge
Thanks in advance

Hansey Creek ramp is my usual place but on the way to the Fort there is a ramp near the inlet but on the other side of the marina is a bridge & creeks I donít know if there is access to those creeks from the other side of the bridge, save myself some padding in fast moving water

If you are talking about the bridge near DCBR on route 676 there used to be access but they put up new guard rails.

Turkey Point is also in there too, but if you're talking 'in' Fortescue, as to your mention of 'where the Marina(Higbees?) is', no....None of the creeks run close in there..We used to pull sneakboxes etc out at the bridge before the Turkey Point 'launch' at low tides, but I'm too old for that [curd] now...I used to launch at Beaver Dam too but the owners(new/same?) didn't want/let us anymore...Talking 15+ years ago now...Kayak wise, upstream from DCBR/there is a bridge we launch from even with a bigger rig...It's steep for that but a yak would be fine...

I just noticed you are probably talking where I mentioned...When did they put guardrails...Oct 2018 I launched there...
