Fast forward through the day, it’s right after lunch. A man with his son come by to fish. By now the Harbor is at low tide or at least close to it. I thought the chances of catching the spider crab were slim, Too small and maybe if the chances were small we would all give up. However when the man reeled the rod in, the rod bent a little and there was a little resistance. I had thought that maybe a small crab was on the line, but boy was I wrong. Right down there the beast rose up. I grabbed the net and was ready to catch. He would not get away this time, the hook was in the spider crabs mouth. He brought it up to where I could get it with the net and boom. The beast was caught, we finally got the beast. It was huge and scary. Like it’s name, it looked very much like a spider, but it was a crab. This was the catch of the week in my opinion and that’s saying something since we caught a big striper the same day. The reason the spider crab beats the striper in the catch of the week for me is how hard we all fought to catch the spider crab. Constantly hooking it but not catching it made it so when we did catch it, it had more meaning than the striper. Anyways, I’ll catch you later. It’s been reel.
