For the last fews weeks there has been a "bloom" of young crabs from Smithtown Harbor to Middle Grounds and east to rocky Point ( it may be bigger, but this is where I fish). In 30 years of fishing on LI Sound I never seen this before, is it a good sign, furture food for the bass or will it crowd out something and hurt next years fishing?

I was wondering the same thing. I first noticed it a few weeks ago on the night of the new moon while fishing in front of Bridgeport Harbor. A week later, the water was still full of clouds of them in Smithtown bay too. This weekend we saw them at the Triangle. None of the oldtimers that I fish with have ever seen anything like it. I hope they are not a dangerous species from overseas that hitchiked here in the bilge of a freighter.
