De Two AJ's,Me and Molly Hit Bayou Lacombe 5 17 22

Checked predicted tidal movement and forecasted wind speed and direction and older son and grandson decided to soak 10 crab nets,armed with some nice and fresh perch carcasses plus a few chicken wings and SHOULDA suggested to older son the correct way to pin fish carcasses into each crab net vs the way he pinned em in nets,making it way too easy for hungry crabs to devour and remove carcasses from nets!!Think we soaked nets maybe all of two hours,hit mouth of Bayou Lacombe for maybe 20 minutes,each of us had pretty significant strikes(missed em,unfortunately)and believe we got maybe 10 gumbo-sized crabs,willing to bet our take woulda been closer to three dozen crabs HAD we NOT lost our perch carcasses!!!Water out there very crab and fish-friendly,probably gonna make return visit very early this Sat!!
