I actually saw a guy with his kids crabbing Cox Creek in a CS J-14 this morning. He was under the bridge where Rte.50 crosses and putting in traps on the edge of the channel that runs under the bridges. That's the first time this year I've seen someone in there. Good news I hope.

There was a comm or at least a comm style boat running a line right down the middle Mem Day Weekend. Haven't seen or heard anyhting since, but that doesn't mean much, the waters warmed ALOT in the last week. I tell ya this though, if the grass in Cox is anything like the grass I've seen in the south it's gonna be hard to run a line or use collapsables in the creek. I've seen more and had trouble with grass in 2 weeks than in 2 years. I guess thats good though.

Lots of grass in Cox. Crabbed there last week. Noticed a lot of small crabs, which isn't on par for that creek this time of year. I'm guessing the grasses attract those small crabs. We pulled traps and it is more work with 10 pounds of grass on the line...but i'll take the grass and a little more work any day if i catch more crabs.

It sounds like there is a ton of grass everywhere. I guess I'll give the Wye a try this weekend or maybe the mouth of Shipping Creek.

Ditto on the grass. I was at the in-laws this past weekend and couldn't believe how much that stuff had grown.
Didn't see any crabs on the pilings. A few people on the water with collapsible traps but they didn't seem to be catching much outside of a tan.
Now, if only I can keep the osprays off of the t-top, I'll be in business.
