Just a little update, I’m finally shutting it down. I had a pretty descent year. I didn’t find the better spot until sometime in May, but I moved all of my traps and it paid off. I went up to 15 sacks then it slowly started slacking off. It’s on the edge of not being worth it anymore and I’m ready for a break. I still have about 220 traps out and it will take me several days and lots of work to pull them out.

Here’s a few pics I took. I thought I would get more, but when it’s 98* and humid taking pictures kind of gets dropped to the bottom of the list. :lol:

Too cool man. We catch them with our hands for smallmouth bait.

Use to run traps 20 years ago. The swamp was very hot and humid but we always had a great time.
