Had a fun trip catching couple dozen nice crabs each day. One unexpected thing was blowfish unexpectedly showing up in our T-120 Topless traps!! They’re outstanding eating!! Skin them like a squirrel then pan fry. Been years since the Atlantic blowfish were caught in this area. A sure sign of improved water conditions.

I always steam whole crab(uncleaned) in a seafood steamer. Only takes a few minutes with crabs done when shells turn orange.

Yep agree...between fillet of blowfish & lump crab meat I'll opt for crab every time!!:smile2:

Gonna get down to my place for a few days to winterize outboard etc so may throw a few traps & see what's happening. One year I caught crabs week before Christmas.

Caught tail end of incoming tide on Tuesday and caught 2 doz nice Jimmies. All were loaded with meat. Should dewinterize boat as the locals were hammering stripers. Boat mech had to order a trailer leaf spring bracket so have another excuse for another end of season trip early next week!:smile2:
