Well after having so much fun crabbing last week talked my friend Mike into going Saturday.We launched 7am to awesome weather.All day the bay lucked like a duck pond.Anyways we managed 12 dungies and 8 reds for the day soaking mackeral.Made some rookie moves but got everything figured out (last week was my first time and Nayr pretty much did everything while I watched).I threw 2 pots with 50ft of line in 38ft of water and after 30 minutes lost them.We stayed out the tide as I knew at slack they would resurface and they did finally at 3:45pm.So We got em back Lesson learned!!The current was strong enough that 12ft extra of line wasnt enough to keep the floats up.Had another crab feast last night.Life is good!!http://i271.photobucket.com/albums/jj152/samp1918/2-1-13022_zpsfd66f0ef.jpghttp://i271.photobucket.com/albums/jj152/samp1918/2-1-13024_zps526cc111.jpg

Good stuff man. And yup that current moves quick through there, good to hear you were able to recover your gear! Did you try for any sharks ?

Yeah But was picked clean by the crabs.Ran out to the edge of the bay to scope out some other areas for fishing but think will have to find some local knowledge as the crabs seem to be everywhere.
