Yes!!!! Me and my bro went wading for flounder the other night!! Thank goodness we brought a dip net! There where some monster blue crabs out just on the edges of the grass flats! We probably scooped 40 or so!!! I'll see if I can get him to post a pic?

Ive been seeing some here and there when out wading. Do many people actaully go out to get crabs around here? I would think with as many crabs as there are around more people would want to go crabbing.

Here in Texas where I live, catching a few crabs with a dip net while gigging for flounder is considered an "added bonus".

Default Bayou Chico

I set my 2 crab traps off of my dock, baited with cut up Ladyfish and overnight got about a dozen big ones.

Tom, where are you located. We placed them in the bay two weeks ago and caught only one crab per trap.

I set out 8 traps in the sound and only picked up 12. seems pretty slim for right now.
