I wonder what people would do if you gave them an honest reply when they ask how are you doing. I always say I'm good how about you? Just once I wish I could tell them how I really feel. I would say, I am worried that my husband will get covid, I do not know how we are going to pay the bills, the doctor won't fix my husband's hernia because of his AFIB and the river has died. But really who cares? Do people want to hear about it? No, they are just being friendly so I will continue saying I am good.
Today I ran my two crab traps one of them had two stone crabs in it the last time I ran it but no blue crabs, I rebaited it and moved it further offshore leaving the stone crabs in it hoping with them eating the bait would attract blue crabs. Today when I ran it both stone crabs were gone, someone ran it. The other trap I had to the south about a mile and it did have one crab in it.
Then I ran my pigfish traps but only got 120 pigfish. Since I was that far south I decided to see if there were any trout on the little round islands so I fished three of the five and only caught two trout and three jacks. Luckily a thunderstorm was building so I ran back to the dock where I hide my bait pen and I had just enough time to put the bait away, feed them and get my boat pulled out before the storm it. That was a good thing.
