View Full Version : First Trip / Eastern Bay 6/11

Took my daughter down to EB to see if the crabs were out and about after the weeks warm temps, not fast and furious but we used 30 traps and got 25 keepers, #1's and #2's. Took over 4 hours but just had to do a recon trip. Hopefully it won't be long now. BTW - they tasted great along with the rockfish nuggets.[smile]

I tried the Chester side with 30 traps and did the worst i have ever done (1 crab). Sounds like EB at least gave you "A Taste". Hopefully in a week or two things should bust open. How deep were you getting them in?
My Dad was talking to someone who tried the Wye Fri or Sat and got 2 crabs!

Brian - I started at 4' and the last one was in 10'. I hope each week will get better and better.[smile]
