    Talking CRABBING 101

    Crabbing season is on a roll down here. For any of you guys who want to go crabbing I'll show you some great picts. of how much fun it is.

    Chop up stinky bait. Lots of it.
    Paint your bouys.
    Fix your traps the Gators chewed on last year.
    Put on new rope that is rotted.
    I only run 5 traps which gets me all the crabs I can eat and give away. But multiply this times the commercial guys who run a 1,000 or more traps. Yuk.
    I will post pictures as I go of setting the traps and catching them. Then I will show you pictures of cooking them and dipping them in melted butter and well you'll see. Ha.
