The Mighty Blue Crab
Catching nothing all day. It’s hot and crazy boaters everywhere running over lines and nearly us. Finally give up on fishing, stop, jump out and one crab decides to defend his turf.
After a not so brief show down I retreated to the boat. Armed with net I finally chase him down like an offshore warrior (or stooge). Exhausted I free him and head home, he wins this day
