Winter has finally made it to the Keys! Not for long!

This first week of 2012 was a cold one by Keys standards! It lasted all of 3 days! As a resident you have to take advantage of the little moments that Mother Nature offers is secret bounty!
What to do when it’s cold and blowing? Go scrimping and crab-n! The cooler weather and water temps get the blue crabs and shrimp moving! Both can be done with hand nets where water is moving and wading is possible! Each annual Florida license holder is allowed 5 crab traps! The best bait we find are the left over heads and spines of the food fish we often chase when the weather is cooler!
Snapper of any species are my personal favorites! Go catch a limit of two of snapper, clean 'em and freeze the carcass for your traps! No waste and the end result is a tasty boil for the friends and family near you! Better than a BBQ if you’re a crab and shrimp lover!
