Crab Fest 2012

I love it that my dad takes us Crab fishing. Salt water fishing licenses for kids under 16 are free, so we always have the kids' up to date when we go for a visit. My dad renews his each year and Steve and I go along for crowd control, and of course we help with the eating. Scott isn't a big fish-eater, but he sure loves catching them and hanging out by the ocean and on the dock.

Getting the traps ready.

Down they go!


Keep pulling...

Sometimes you get the reward of a beautiful male crab that is big enough to keep, and sometimes you get a great big slimy starfish!

Steve made a few new friends...

We had the most incredible weather while we were on the island.

We got 6 keepers the first day and 10 the second day. Each license is allowed to keep 4, so our max would be 16.

Todd and Papa... two peas in a pod and best buddies from the start!
