Well I brought aboard Luis, a sheet metal buddy of mine this morning. This was Luis's first crabbing experience, and he did great helping with bait and the hook...Thank you! Welcome aboard anytime, as long as I have a say!
The seas today were calmer than yesturday, but we fell a little short today. 43 over the rail today...a bit smaller than prior catches. We some how got on a bunch of rock crab, and must have thrown a dozen or so back over the rail. My favorite 2 pots #8 and #9 did not produce well for the crew today...
. Stuffed it full of mackral and squid for another soak, with our others. We went and retreived a stuck pot for a fisherman. Glen, who also came aboard for the 3rd deck hand is going to finish off the season with us. He will be working the deck with me and we will be adding his pots to our existing strings. Skipper's son Daniel also joint us for a great day on the water! Today is his 14th birthday, and he wanted to go crabbing with us. He also got to take the wheel on the way out with his father's careful guidence. Here are a few pics from today. Enjoy...
