We spent last weekend at Sunset Beach just up on the North Carolina border, which means time to crab. We baited the old crab traps as in years before, but the catch was much lighter this time around.

Up at Bill's Seafood over on the mainland, the counter man said their catches were way down, too--with their suppliers bringing in as few as 20 per day.

I only stayed for a long weekend, and we managed to catch only 6 crabs in that time--hardly enough for more than a handful of crab cakes. So, I left the cleaned meat for my parents, who were staying on the rest of the week. Hopefully they managed to take enough to make a decent meal.

I snuck a few pinches of that wonderful white meat on the sly, though--sweet and delicious.
