Air temp. Hot/Humid
Wind None flat as glass till noon ( then 5-10 from SE)
Water temp 85-87F
Water color pea soup green

Hit the water about 6:45 AM right when the sun was cresting the horizon, absolutely beautiful! The smell of jet fuel was in the air as the SpaceX super-secret satellite mission was pending launch.
Started the day off putting a boatload of gear down in no specific manner, because crabbing has been so good this year no matter where you put your pots it’s going to be the same.
Ran around 100 traps then headed back to the ramp with the boat tilted to the starboard side.
Went to another ramp (not far away) The water was more of a normal brown algae cuolor. Pulled in some traps to take home because they were fouled out.
All in all a whopping 25 pound Blue Crab. I think I caught more pounds of barnacles on the traps I brought home.

Not the best catch in the world but still better than not even trying.

Thanks for the report but I was surprised to hear you say "because crabbing has been so good this year"! Crabbing just north of you in Volusia County crabbing has sucked for the last year or two! Since we had the back to back hurricanes followed by the Brown Tide Algae bloom.  Crabs here have been few and far between and they are small!  I see the comms here set out a string for 24 hours then move it. It is obvious they are constantly searching for new crabs!  I have talked with the bait shops and they can't supply demand from the fishermen!
