\r\n After a very disappointing trip to the south river, headed way south and got 4 stuffed bushels over the last 2 days. Clams and necks in 4 to 7 feet. Starting at 7am finished by noon both days. Lots of smalls and females.\r\n

    \r\n Crabs are where you find them. It\'s just like hunting other game. My grandson & I managed over 2 bushels of mixed males Wednesday and couldn\'t fit any more into the 150 quart cooler that we took to contain the crabs instead of placing them in baskets in the hot air. They were culled to a minimum of 5 1/4".
    \n Surprisingly we caught only 23 sooks. Many hundreds of 3" crabs were returned to be caught again as keepers later in the season. There were many other commercial crabbers nearby, but they didn\'t fare as well with some not reaching the half bushel mark for their efforts.
    \n
    \nWe ran out of clams while baiting the last 600\' segment of line so we interspersed the clam bags between fowl necks for that last segment of line. Much to my surprise the necks caught very well. The magic depth for us was from 4\' thru 7\'. All in all it was a very good day for us and we\'ll be reaping the reward for our effort this afternoon with family and friends at our crab feast.
    \n
    \nWe decided not to "cross over the bridge" where it has been said 3 and 4 bushel days have been the norm. Instead we selected a mid western shore river and chose an area that we haven\'t crabbed at for several years. It paid off for us.
    \n
    \nHappy and safe INDEPENDENCE DAY to all.\r\n

    \r\n In past years there were 2 of them a ways apart. I saw neither of them this trip. Farther south from where they were is better catching. Check it out.\r\n
