I recall back in the 60's people would pull 2 & 3 metal wash tubs of blue shell. As for stone same here on one claw but believe everything is seasonal. I have never been crabbing but in the 70's I would buy live blues for bait when I wanted to handle larger fish. Oh I have some cool stories.
Ambers....different bait, Now days.....4+ foot Amber-Jacks? I am on the INET in clips, but I won't acknowledge myself. I just must have some privacy but if you knew you would have a super laugh.
Glad you are back, anyways that border feller sure swears a lot.
