Default Fair night out

My neighbor wanted some crabs for a mothers day crab boil, and we picked up a few flounder as well, one sheephead and three mullet.

Hell Yeah!

Haven't seen any good flounder in West Choctawhatchee in quite awhile, glad somebody found some!

Default How did you get the crabs?

Dip net? I used a bully net with pretty good success. Easier than a regular dip net.

No net, I have a pair of tongs 7' long that I just pick them up with, similar to a pair of oyster tongs, like picking up paper.

With a mixed bag catch like that, that is what I call a great mixed bag catch. Anytime I'm out gigging for flounder, I always like to catch some big blue crabs since I consider them an added bonus for the trip.

Sometimes when the flounder trip isn't going well, as in not finding any, the caught crabs save the "night".

I'd say you had a pretty good night Jim! Wife and I were in seagrove beach yesterday, drove through Freeport. Water looked plenty giggable. I need to get out there sooner than later.
