Has Anyone Been Crabbing?

    I have been too busy lately to get out and I have been less than enthusiastic with the results when I did go.
    I last went on 9-24-2018 in Oak Hill but only got three crabs in an hour and a half. I caught the incoming tide and thought I would do better. I did ake a water sample and the water is basically fresh! The temperature was also high at 88-89F! Crabs die at a water temperature of 91F so you know they are stressed and taking it easy either in the mud or in deeper water.
    The high afternoon temps have finally relented a bit and hopefully the crabs will respond as water temps drop.

    Thank you for the report. We are going to be back again in December. Hopefully then the crabs like the temperatures better!
