Calm before the storm

Called my buddy Kegan to fish the Warwick and James for puppy drum today for a couple hours. Checked the minnow traps behind the house and had 4 dozen or so. I put those in a couple five gallon buckets, grabbed a couple dozen fiddler crabs I caught yesterday , loaded the boat and we headed out to denbigh park ramp. I had seen fiddlers in the bellies of the ones I had been cleaning thought what the heck.  Fished various spots and ended with 21 puppy drums ,4 keepers. All of our big fish came from live fiddler crabs. Big storm started to roll in so we called it at 2pm and headed in just in time to avoid the monsoon.
