I'd say that's more like hoping a plane crashes on your house so that you can remodel your kitchen. I definitely am not rooting for a hurricane to come up the Bay!And the lead scientist says says let’s just hope weather patterns bring a hurricane and more tidal flow to bring in more larvae from the ocean!! Possible but like betting on wining the lottery for your retirement.
Same here Gary ..I crab around my marina and 1.5 to 2 dozens is perfect for us..would know what to do with much more except giving it way to friends.With the cost of crabs, everyone that has a boat is crabbing and wanting to catch a "limit" When I go I just catch enough to eat.......... Gary
LOL, ain't met my family, have you?I think the recreational limit on crabs is way too much. One crabber does not need nor can eat a bushel of crabs
And you don't think politics influenced her management decisions?Also, many feel Brenda Davis lost her job because of politics, but I feel she lost her job because she didn’t do it well. Your seeing it now and in years past with poor crab counts and harvest year after year. Jmo
Every "crabber" is different. My crabs not only feed myself but also my wife, 2 kids, their spouses, and 2 grandsons. A bushel does not last very long.I think the recreational limit on crabs is way too much. One crabber does not need nor can eat a bushel of crabs
she has an incredible education and resume.She played the politics as well, salary and benefits were gleaming, if she cared about what she did, she wouldn’t of cared about the politics and did the right thing and didn’t care, could of got a job anywhere. She didn’t do a good job managing the crabs and that whyare where we are and she is out of a job. I’ll bet though, she’s doing fine somewhere else. About to retire, yet our crabs are still in troubleAnd you don't think politics influenced her management decisions?
She wasnt alone, she went out in a rash of political removals.
And we are poorer for it.
We'd like to think that science alone is what management decisions are based on, but never has been. And sadly, politics plays an ever increasing role.
Trust the science!
2 dozen for 6 adults and 2 kids? Since when was immediate family the "neighborhood"?I don’t think it’s the bay’s responsibility to feed the neighborhood crabs because you can. 2 dozen is plenty for what your asking.
