My wife and I are headed down either Friday night or early Saturday morning. This should be a fun time and a great family day giving back to the outdoors. I have run the bays my entire life. I would like to think I gave something back. These statistics that Captain Martin posted are unbelievable. Over 30,000 crab traps recovered is outstanding on behalf of the volunteer groups.

Oh and btw Captain Martin is a good guy. I was at Charlie's ramp one day and had an ignition switch go bad. He was walking by as I was fiddling with it. He said "Hold on" and went to his truck tool box. He dug around for 10 minutes trying to find a spare ignition. He didn't have one but I appreciated it all the same. Good guy report!

I have had a total of 3 boat break downs in over 30 years of boat ownership. 2 in one weekend. I hope you never have to experience one.

Are you two headed to the coast this weekend for the crab trap clean up?

Aint no thing my man. I am trying to get a group up to go. It would be a lot more fun with a group. It will be tough if it is just me and the wife. She isn't about to go grabbing a crab trap full of slime and critters. So I will have to drive and pull traps, stack traps ect. I can tell you now she will be enjoying the sunshine and the beverages long before she touches a trap. I think Captain Kendricks and Kurry are both going to be down there too.

I was at Boo-rays seafood last night eating crabcakes just thinking about how that whole industry should be shut down. Crap trappers are the devils themselves!

I was at Long John Silver's thinking how they should shut down Boo Ray's last night, coincidence?

Crabber's are no worse than duck hunters, look at all the crap they leave laying around

I will go one step further, I would bet the majority of those abandoned traps belong to a poor slob with a cheap GPS and a pontoon boat, probably some of them duck hunters, that they set and then couldn't find later. Giving up, they set some more.

Just nate I may have had a turn of events. If we are able to go we will be at the fishing center in Port O'Connor at 7:00 am. I will either be there or headed to a funeral. Not sure but will know about 9 am today.

I really appreciate you wanting to go. I will pm you later in the morning.

Just Nate I talked to Mr. Boyd with TPWD Port O'Conner. He said to come by the TPWD office for supplies. They issue poles with hooks and tarps for the bottom of the boat. He was happy to have recieved a lot of calls about the clean up. I am still waiting to hear from family about whats happening. More than likely no funeral. I will know certain here in a bit.

In the meantime check this video out. This has been a coastal problem for years. The fisherman on the east coast have come to grips with ghost traps. They realize ghost traps are taking money directly our of their own pockets. Nobody ever knew or ever really thought about a ghost trap years ago. This is a good program that benefits everyone involved.
