I moved down here to go to school and married a lady from down here. Not overly familiar with saltwater fishing but grew up fishing freshwater everyday. I was jugging the other night on Bayou Sorrel and caught what my partner called a “gafftopsail” catfish. Strangest looking catfish I’ve ever seen. He said it wasn’t unusual to catch them. Then he mentioned that he has seen crabs in Bayou Sorrel as well. I couldn’t believe it. I dipped my hand in the water and tasted some, tasted sweet to me. Was he pulling my leg? If not, how far north do those crabs go?
