Incidently, could anyone tell me when the blue claw crab starts running north up the Hudson River? It is where I keep my non-functioning whaler and motor docked and if I can make the outboard run again will do some crabbing this season.
I apologize for the somewhat non-related topic. Thank you!

Hello,
Last week I was in our local sea food shop getting myself a nice fresh fried soft shell crab sandwich with tarter and noticed they only had softies at 5$ each for sale and no hards.
I believe the downside of the first full moon in May, now, is the big shed and beginning of full swing summer life for the local inshore species around this area. Give or take. Probably a little later where you are. Things seem to be off a tad earlier this year with all the warm weather and one guy I watch already has all his traps out in the Barnegat. They'll fill out over the next two weeks or so nicely and be ready for the Old Bay.
Thanks
Chap
