I was fortunate enough to get a chance at submitting an article for my favorite magazine since I was a kid, and wrote a story about crabbing last summer with my family in the Chesapeake bay. I couldn't be happier to have my boy pictured in the magazine and hope folks have a chance to read it. I hope others in the trapping community enjoy it.

Read article this morning when I received my copy. Very cool. I have fished and crabbed a few days on bay in the past.

I look forward to reading your article when I receive the June issue.


I got myself a seniors' GPS.
Not only does it tell me how to get to my destination,
it tells me why I wanted to go there.

Just got the issue, looking forward to reading it


But I'm afraid the ask just what kind of crabs you're catching up in Frederick, LOL.

Met a guy last Friday from up near Boonsboro.
Told me he comes down here to crab ( I'm in St Mary's)
Asked where, and he quickly described MY EXACT GO TO SPOT!!!

Man, if it ain't Pennsylvanians.....

Thank you to everyone for the positive feedback and encouraging words! I did pick up a few extra copies to hang on to for my boys in the future.

DaveP - there's a fair chance I might know the fellow you talked to.
I crab in St. Mary's county, on the south side so the Potomac.
My wife grew up in Great Mills, where her father retired as a Navy Chief at PAX.
In the article I mention having crabs at the VFW, which is in California, where my father in law is very active. We actually had our wedding reception there too, almost 8 years ago now.

Because of this thread, I checked it out when my copy came yesterday. Very interesting! Being a life long midwesterner crabs are a foreign species to me!

Thank you, trapdog. I wrote the article moreso to share something new to others more than others on the East coast.

If you had questions after reading the article I'm happy to explain more

Congrats getting an article in FFG is a big accomplishment!

Great story.


�Still, if you will not fight for the right when you can easily win without bloodshed; if you will not fight when your victory will be sure and not too costly; you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a precarious chance of survival. There may even be a worse case. You may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than live as slaves. � � Winston Churchill
