    Hi, I have been fishing up in Maine for a few years now. The one difficulty I always run into are crabs. I use mackeral or sand worms as bait and half the time the crabs eat it all. Does anyone know a better way so the crabs don't end up taking my bait? Thanks

    Has anybody used these? I'm thinking about giving them a try in the Chesapeake next spring, but was wondering if they worked. I had a hell of a time last summer keeping frozen (but thawed) peelers rigged properly, and screwing around with it on my 14' aluminum boat in the bay chop is annoying...

    found one in chesapeake recently. Why should we be worried? An expanding mitten crab population poses several ecological, economic and human health threats. The mitten crab may have a profound effect on biological communities through predation and competition, and could change the structure of...

    What about crabs? I have a crab trap (not like a lobster trap, i put bait in it and lower into water, wait for crab/crabs to come in and then pull rope up, which closes sides). What if I took the crabs and hooked them up? I know that they might have to be small, not too big, And if I let it sink...
