Henry - That sounds like great advice. There always seemed to one bone that alerted the others. I'll try your method next time.
Bjorn - January is tough but still better than winter in Boston.
Vince - I did try to dig up some crab holes but they seemed to be dug in quite deep. The larger ones I saw scurrying across the sand in shallow water. I will focus more on catching some so I can "match the hatch" more accurately.
I'll keep following this group to pick up tips. Of course in another 4 months I'll be sniffing out Stripers.
