Does anyone know what the deal is with everywhere being closed to the taking of crab. I know it has been this way for a while but never found out why or if it will reopen anytime. I made a mistake with my shrimp pots and removed a small piece of twine that I thought might impede shrimp from getting in easily and well I didn't have any shrimp but I had 20 some small crab that I had to let go. There must be a bunch of them down there. I also fished in Resurrection bay 2 weekends ago and split open the belly of a small halibut, there were 5 crabs in there.
