It looks like a bath tub that day. Wish I could have been there after all of the wind last few days. Nice catch !

Sounds like you are dropping near rocks if you're getting a lot of rock crab.

Not sure how it is now, but few months back, we were dropping them in 40ft outside of the harbor and getting decent dungies. Using only squid in bait jars, no hanging bait. Hope that helps.

Man, sounds like a great time! Nice job!

As for crabbing, I'd have to agree. Too many rock crab, you're too close to the rocks. As for bait. When I'm not hurting on cash, we use squid, but I've done fine on chicken too. We've done it plenty of different ways. If you go to your local supermarket early and go back to the meat department, sometimes they'll give you a big bag of scraps (chicken fat/skin, fish carcases, heads, etc.) for free. I've also gone to food-maxx or somewhere, bought the $6-7 package of 20+ chicken drumsticks, and cut off chunks of meat for stew/soup at home. Leaving some meat, the skin, and the fat on the bone. Done just fine with all of those as bait.
