    Its probably easy sorting males from females, just keep the happy quite ones and through the bitching loud ones back LOL

    Its going great just got in from setting them back out actually. great afternoon out on the water!

    The females have different color claws then the males and have a different shape to the abdomen. Porter, there are plenty of crab to go around....ever had crab cakes????

    Great fishing right now, averaging 15 keepers per trap right now.
