Sounds like you have the real deal, wondering if you mind helping me out with some information.

I crab out of Moss landing and have 3 traps. Have managed to catch a few crabs but never more than 1 or 2 per trap. We have used rock cod and salmon carcass, Sand dab heads and any other fish parts I have froze during the summer.

Do you have a special bait ? :skull:

Continued good luck to you.

Went out of Moss Saturday and it was slow for us. On our second pull we moved our string north of the telephone bouy and ended with only 9 for 2 of us using 10 pot's. The next day we had nine in our first 3 and ended with our limit checking 6 pot's. Our buddy boat found 16 in their first 2 pot's and ended with limit's for 4 guys each day. Sound's like Half Moon has a much better concentration since the 2 friends we talked 2 were limited for 4 guys just checking a few pot's. Weather got rough for them on Sunday and they couldn't make it out. We used everthing from pork haunch to salmon carcasses.

G-Nappers, you should have talked Tommy into running from HMB. We had one of the best opener in years! Today, we had 44 jumbos crawlers in one pot. Easy limits since the opener.
