This Data was gathered from Occohannock Creek, a bayside creek in Northampton County, Virginia.The crabs here are usually larger than other creeks on the Eastern Shore. The pots were set out April 9th.;it had been a warm start to but it cooled down and the wind stayed Northeast for a very long time.Because of shallow water ;wind and tide direction the time to fish the traps is not very accurate.
