Started the trip off with an experiment in the pots off the dock on Thursday night with quartered ground hog in one, fish in the other.  Results were 4 crabs in the hog, 2 keepers.  Hog was gone, unfortunately the latch was busted on the pot, so I may have lost some.  Fish had 7 crabs, 2 keepers.

Friday, halfway crabbed during the day with 5 traps on the socks loaded with clams.  Ton of females and smalls.  Ened up with about a dozen throughout the day.

This morning I set 300ft of line with necks, and 10 traps with clams.  Was quite a grind.  I probably boated 2 bushels of crabs, but only ended with a little more than 2 keepers after 4 hours.  Probably tossed back 2 dozen 5 1/8 inch crabs.  I think I should have waited until afternoon.  Added another 20 or so crabs in 2 hours from the dock this afternoon.   57 total in the pot (also lost 4 in the live box).  Most were in the 6 inch range.  A couple of jumbos, but nothing like last month.
