Fishing the back country and checking the traps last Sunday. Not a real good year for Stone Crabs but were at least getting acceptable numbers for 10 traps. Seems if you leave them in too long, they either get robbed or Octoed.

    "Octoed" What a great word & you could be right. I have seen more octopus this year than last. I went to wire ties & so far none have been cut. Nice fish & thanks for sharing.

    Never caught the sneaky buggers in the traps, however, we did find evidence that one of our traps was robbed. There was a yellow lobster glove amidst about ten colossals in the trap. I can't find the picture right now. The robber might be easier to identify with missing digits.
