View Full Version : is it worth trying with 2 pots off the pier this weekend

going to be on the water at Solomons this weekend and was wondering if it was worth baiting our 2 pots at the end of the peir? Seems like the water is still too cold, for them to be running yet? House is between Sandy Pt. and Pt. Patience.

OF COURSE it's worth it! You got about 10 minutes invested in baiting and checking. It sure can't hurt. Good Luck.

I have to respectfully disagree with the guy with the extra Hydrogen atom. Hell NO it's not worth it for the rest of us. Every crab you catch is one less that we can't. Leave your pots in the shed![grin]

Here is my approach to the first try and you are not to far north and west of me assuming you are in So. Md and they are running well in VAES.
Bait em and drop in. Keep them as far apart as possible. Remember those pots are competing against each other. I buy a basket of bunker and portion 8 fish per bag and keep in freezer so when it is time to rebait I take one bag out.
The first crabs of the year should be fat since the "Run" hasn't occurred yet.
Can u only use two pots in MD? The more the better of course.
In Va. you can use two per family off the same dock.
When the first peeler run is in sometimes I just leave the pots on the dock and wait til then fatten up again unless I am looking for white, soft or peelers crabs. If you catch one white crab in a pot normally the rest of the crabs will be junk as well. It is important to rebait everyday and dump the junk each time.
Good luck and keep us posted.
