The gear is wet, and now it's a bit of a waiting game as the pots need to soak a spell before we haul em'. Pulling a pot with less than 18 hours of soak at the start of the season is a huge mistake. The pots need to "work" the bottom through two (or more) tidal periods to give the crab an honest chance to reach their ultimate destination... your plate, via our tanks! But curiosity is a powerful thing and hauling early has crushed many a dream, as the scores are almost always low and not a good indication of what's really down there. We have the resolve to wait.
The weather is decent and it has yet to snow.
