Less about the crabbing report and more about the phenomenon.  I'll get the crabbing report over first - Crabbed at the outgoing to beginning of incoming.  6 - 8 ft with traps, water at 56 degrees when I started.  Sad news is that I ended up with only 25 crabs from barely 5 1/4" to a little over 6".  The problem wasn't availability, it was lack of current...almost none for 5 hours.  When current finally did decide to come in, it was slow to none.  Must have been the middle of the lunar cycle.  I'm quite certain I could have had a half bushel or more if there was a little push from the current.

Now the cool part: someone else posted a "fog rainbow".  I had a fog wormhole.  Could look straight up and see blue sky.  Fifty feet away, couldn't see jack squat.  Check out the image, it's not out of focus.

Second cool part: I hear huge splashing noises very near my boat, and then the appearance of a huge pod of porpoise.  I'm 75 miles from the mouth of the Chesapeake.  Really cool.  There are plenty of brown pelicans and cow-nosed rays around, but this is the first time I have seen porpoises / dolphins this far up the bay, especially with the water temps being so cool.

Yeah I saw the same kind of fog rainbow on the Wye. I didn't think to try and take a pic. The tide current there was pretty slack as well. Very strange.

Very cool. I was there at Jane's island dock crabbing. Maybe we saw each other...maybe not through the fog. I was also waiting a long time for the water to start moving and it just never happened so I packed up around noon.

I posted the fog rainbow, apparently they are relatively rare.  Must have been perfect conditions on Saturday.  The fog was crazy for sure.

25 crabs is better than none, enjoy them!

Many years ago I saw a school of porpoise in the Wye River. They were in and out around wet stone and shaw bay. They weren't there long just a few minutes and they disappeared.

Lately, the dolphins have been as far north as the Chester River and maybe even further.

They are in the Pax every year for the last 5 or 6 years.

I think this time of year if you can get 2 dozen you are doing ok.  Last year I saw a big pod of dolphins in the Miles , they are neat to see and watch.

I frequently see dolphins in the Potomac below the 301 bridge. It's always cool. I frequently see bull sharks there in the summer, too.
