I was pretty successful in catching the crabs this week. I managed to haul in a butt load of blue crab, 32, and three rock crab which I turned loose. In SC you can only take one claw* from a rock crab and then he/she needs to be put back in the water to breed. Their claws will grow back and the only real damage done is to their pride as most object to being called Lefty. LOL
I tossed them all back in the marsh completely whole.
