Yesterday evening, First Mate Mavich, Cabin Boy Noel, and I went out in the cold overcast evening to pull in our new wire style crab traps. The best we've done so far was 32 claws. Last night we came home with 47 stone crab claws and a nice by-catch of 30 blue crabs! We also caught and released two trigger fish, another big puffer, a flounder, a sea horse, and a bunch of little purple crabs we'd never seen before. We couldn't believe how far our traps had moved in a week; they'd drifted about 1/2 a mile! We ran out of light before we could find the last three, but we also found and recovered three ghost traps, so it was a wash.
