Chesapeake Bay waterman Gordon Kolsox catches crabs. Gordon baits a "trotline" with pieces of salted eel or chicken necks. Secured by buoys at both ends, the rope rests on the bottom long enough to attract crabs. He draws the rope over a roller as the boat glides foward. The crabs hold on until the last second, when Gordon deftly nets them. One at a time.
