doing running the shop. Always great personalities, awesome news and

everything available I always need. Caught several flounder this

weekend, Blues included, (Roosevelt Area) using out blue and minnow —

majority were throw backs but that was ok, a little windy this weekend,

hut still beautiful. Caught one thing never to be lost—(Peace of Mind).

However the crabbing report has been wonderful over the past 3 weeks. I

cant get over how many huge ones we’re getting, up to 7”, Pulled in

several bushels over the past weeks using mostly frozen bunker / Mullet.

about letting the sponge return to the waters.

Thanks again to all. Lee Lovette of Denton, Maryland”
