Crabbed E Bay this morning. Tough day with only 23 crabs to show for the effort. The water was amazingly clear which meant a lot of drop-offs. We were still getting 3-4 per run on the 1200' snood line. Then the rays showed up. I have no idea how many crabs we lost to those *(&@$&^*(&%!#$$%^& critters. We had one pick off a crab 5 feet in front of my netter!!! He almost was able to hit the thing with the net. I also ran 30 topless traps with clams and got two for the effort. I was in 6-8 feet of water over towards prospect bay.
Just finished eating the crabs. Forgot all about how tough the crabbing was!
Now off for some yellowfin tuna! What a weekend!
Thanks for the report. What a weekend is right :-)
