Yes, it's that time again. Stone crab season begins October 15th, and you can lay your traps on the 5th and pull them on the 15th. Guess who has five traps with her name on them this year? Give up? ME!

If you have a fishing license, you can have up to five traps. They come five to a box, and you put them together.

After the sides and lid are assembled, concrete is poured
to make the bottom. It needs this weight to keep it on the
 bottom, otherwise, it would float away.
Here they are with the concrete set up,

Next, the line and buoy is added.

The "R" stands for RECREATIONAL. We are not commercial. 

They were baited with pig feet, loaded on the boat and we took off to set them.

In just 10 days we will have a feast on stone crab claws! I can't wait.
