trotline crabbing in broad creek.

crabbing in september.

johnny gowe scoops up a crab from his trotline in broad creek — neavitt, md.

at the end of september i ventured out into broad creek to photograph the local watermen working their trotlines — fall crabbing! i spent most of the morning aboard dreamer with captain johnny gowe. once again i was so impressed by the dedication of the watermen, and loved watching them scoop up the blue crabs and fill their bushels!
