Shame all the crabs have left the area. They would have feasted on the spot.

Visit Maryland DNR's Eyes on the Bay website ( to see data/story ( that shows record low water temperatures in the Chesapeake Bay in December 2010.

Thanks very much to Eyes on the Bay for that temperature graph and the helpful links!

That is a Norfolk Spot.

Craig Brewer is the winner of the name that fish contest, because he gave the first correct answer after I posted the question on the CBF Facebook Page.

Craig, send me your t-shirt size and mailing address and I'll mail you a CBF T-Shirt.

Thanks everyone for playing!
