Midnight Crab Opener - it's a tradition.

What an incredible evening on the water! No wind. Mild ocean. Mild temps. Wow!

Jumbos right off the bat. Ideal conditions persisted.

Bite died off a bit. Headed home at 2AM with 4 jumbos out of 12 legals landed - 5th jumbo jumped ship...

Fantastic opener - absolutely stellar!  :smt001

Awesome job brother,
After 2 visits this year, I'm playing it safe and waiting for good conditions. Wind is still blowing a bit, I'll go if it calms a little otherwise I'll go another day.

Easy picking in the morning too.  2 rings and limit of crab in less than hour .  All crab were 7" or better except 3 that were just under 7.

Nice work, Eric.  I've been sick the last few weeks, but going to go give it a go this weekend.
