Sunrise on bay
Mark Kitching drives his boat as the sunrise casts a warm glow on his face. He is a crab scraper from Smith Island who fishes the Chesapeake Bay for crabs by using a net which scrapes the bottom. He pulls the net aboard his boat, the Miss Anita, and looks through the sea grass and mud trying to find soft shell and peeler crabs.
