Ran 800 ft of trotline with chicken necks from 7 am - 1 pm Friday. High tide was at 8 am at Maxwell Point. First set was just inside the mouth of Dundee Creek, second set was just inside the mouth of Saltpeter Creek at around 10am. Caught 3-4 bu of crabs that were 5 & 7/32s". Caught ½ bu of crabs that were over 5¼"........ a few at 6½". Some others returning to the ramp at the same time that crabbed in the Gunpowder only had 10 crabs.
Not a stellar catch; but, got to spend the day with my son and daughter-in-law, caught enough crabs for dinner and leftovers, and saw a water snake trying to eat a cat fish 4 times bigger than he was that he had by the tail ....... amazing!
Pics are of the catch and the last crab caught which was on the last bait just before the chain as we were pulling the line.
All-in-all a great time .......... but then, even the worse day on the water is better than the best day at work!
