WOW!!!!!!!! I guess I really need to head up the bay to try some of this drought year crabbing. I have never crabbed north of the Bay Bridge except in the lower Chester.
Can someone remind me where Bear Creek is located?

Probably the one that's been ripping all the claws of the ones I been catching. Glad he's out of the mix.

Stevel, if it's the one i'm thinking of it's off the patapsco just before the key bridge on the right. John
Bear Creek flows into the Patapsco just before the Key Bridge on the right if you are travelling east. Have had success in late August and early Sepetember in Bear Creek around Peach Orchard Cove.

I guess those heavy metals didn't stunt his growth any.

Those sound like some real Whale Soft Crabs. If they were velvet smooth just sheds then someone got some good eating.

Take that crab over to J.O.'s and enter it in the biggest crab of the year contest. You could win top prize with that baby.
