The wind is crazy out there, we stuck with it though.
31 feet, sardines in the cages, and managed our limits in 55 minutes.
5 males and 9 females, good quality, and done by 820 last night.
Enjoy, and be safe out there, good luck everyone.

Do you do seminars?
Great work, year after year.

Years ago Mike I'd get guys together and we'd chat about technique, rigging, locations, depth, bait, cages, bridle rigging, driving the boat, etc., but these days I really don't have the time and more than that there's a number of entities that continue to exploit people and the resource, all I'll say on that. Let me get through this week and we can go from there okay. PING me in another month and I'll see where I'm at. Have a great day! John.

Added
1 male and 13 females.

Great year for you! Are you hurting next years crop by taking females or is that old school thinking?

Speaking with a number of the local commercial crab/lobster/sheepshead fisherman/boats at the launch ramp various days this week everything seems to be in order from a size, sustainability, male-female balance for all 3 species I just mentioned. Enjoy! John.

    I went to one of those get togethers and learned a lot from looking at how guys rigged, and just talking to people. That was a fun day.
