Between storms the weather has been very nice and several boaters have gone crabbing. Inside the bay has still been the top provider with some people limiting out. Most folks aren't limiting but are still catching enough for dinner. There are a few crabs in the outer bay as well. Ten Mile is good for a nice drive but not much else. The fishermen that are catching more are changing their bait often and using fresh, not rotten, fish, squid and chicken (the fattier, the better). There had been a good leopard shark bite from the beach about a half-mile past the end of the seawall but that has slowed down. The surfperch are also biting for those patient enough to figure out where the schools are. Up near the rocks has been better on average but they can show up anywhere on the beach.
