Haven't gotten out to do the topless lately but figured I would post a report how my 10 crab pots have been doing.  Tossed them in Friday(June 4th) and have worked them every other day.  First time I pulled them, I got a total of 19 mixed crabs.  Second time, 15 mixed crabs.  Using menhaden as bait where most commercial guys are still using clams.  Still pretty slow my way but its picking up every week.  Hope to get out with the topless traps here soon.  Everyone seeing the same thing?

I pulled my pots last week. Just was worth the gas.  Gonna wait a few more weeks and try again.  Undecided

Just an update.   Pulled the same 10 pots yesterday after a 3 day soak.   35 mixed crabs plus two softies for lunch.   Enjoyed the harvest with friends next to the water with jalapeño poppers and stuffed green peppers.   Delicious!  Still haven’t done my topless but plan to get out when the crabs are in full swing here.

Hard to beat a soft-shell sandwich.  Good job fish dog.
