I am new to crabbing and figured that this was the best place to go for information. I am from Ocean County NJ and am looking for free crabbing locations. Also, when is the best time of day to crab? When does the crabbing season begin in NJ? Any other helpful information would be greatly appreciated. Please feel free to tell me basic information that most people already know, as I am practically brand new!
Ocean County? You can use baskets or collapsable box or star traps at the head of Dock Road off after turning east off of Route 9 in West Creek. It is one of the best crabbing spots from land in the area. You will see the spot clearly, as other recreational crabbers will be lining the waterline once things heat up.
