It’s that time again, time to spend another beautiful Texas winter day on the bay collecting abandoned crab traps. The crabbing closure will be February 16th – 25th this year, with the main event day on Saturday, February 17th from 8 AM to 12 PM, weather permitting. Only the POC TPWD docks will be facilitated by TPWD staff, however, Charlies and the Austwell boat ramp will also have dumpsters for trap disposal. We will have gloves, tarps, hooks, and bottled water available at the TPWD-POC facility Friday, February 16th. If anyone has any big plans for Charlies or the Austwell boat ramp (food, music, dance, tractor pull, etc) you can just Reply All to this email and let everyone know. Again this year Allan Berger, with the San Antonio Bay Partnership, will be coordinating a large effort out of Port O’Connor, so he will be looking for volunteers. Dan Alonso, with the San Antonio Bay Foundation, will also be coordinating an effort in the upper bay around the delta.
