Blue crab blues – when crabs fight, might makes right

Crustaceans are invertebrates and have skeletons that are on the outside. In order to gr…ow they have to molt or shed their exoskeleton. Before it can molt, the crab must create a new, soft, paper thin shell beneath the existing hard one. When the new shell is fully formed under the old shell, the crab stops eating and finds a safe place to begin molting.

Neyhart entered the residence and then returned shortly thereafter making statements that they would need to get a tag and title work completed before she could drive it away. He and Turner then drove the victim to Fitzgerald’s Salvage near Lincoln where they dropped her off and informed her someone would be coming to her with the keys and title. After a period of time, no one showed up.

Cap’n Larry Jarboe: Serendipity Serenade

Since the working, fishing, music making portions of our lives left little time for practice sessions, Ralph and I came up with a plan to work out our sets and teach Tony consistent timing.
Ralph flipped on the cassette player in the cabin. Tall lanky Tony started drumming on the engine box. I tossed my mesh bag holding a frozen block of chum overboard. Ralph and I baited up and threw our lines out while I flipped fresh chum from the five gallon bucket. Tony sang a song, then Ralph, back to Tony, then my word or two, and back to Tony.

Most sane fishermen would figure that there is no way we could catch a fish with all that cacophony taking place. Though their ears cannot be seen externally, fish have internal ear bones in their skull which hear amplified vibrations from their air bladder. Also, fish have a lateral line along their side that picks up vibrations in the water. During my years running party boat snapper night fishing trips in the Keys, I discovered that the hum of a genset produced more fish than running the night lights from the battery bank. Mixing a steady sound with an abundant flowing food source is actually a recipe for some very good fish catches if applied properly.

Summer on the Chesapeake Bay: Bow-fishing on the Potomac and Patuxent Rivers

Bow-fishing on the Potomac, So, I cast the baited but non-weighted rig behind the boat, flipped out a lot of slack line, and put the rod in the stern rod holder with an open bail while I baited up a bottom rig on another rod. By the time I got that rig to the bottom, the drift rig rod was jumping. I pulled in two big croakers on that rig and proceeded to catch my limit of croaker on the drift rig. I think the wire spreader has enough weight to drift to the bottom and move across with the current. Regardless of why it works, this is a good trick that you are welcome to forget but a smart fisherman won’t.

Regardless of whether you are catching one or two fish at a time, June is the time to catch a nice mess of fish with minimum effort. If you can’t catch them now, you might as well take up playing golf.
