Well last year at Snoopy's pier area my daughter and I caught some wonderful crabs in the 6 and 7 inch range. It was in Sept. thru March when we tried but haven't tried this time of year.

I was told more crabs were around last year and the beginning of this year by many fisherman but haven't been out yet to find any.Will soon do so though. laugh

I've made myself a crab net from chicken wire which makes it easier to not have to even touch the crabs caught by turning the net over on a large bucket. Grin

No green collapsing twine to get the crab caught up in and have to untangle only to get your fingers nipped by the crabs waiting claws! Roll Eyes

Nah...there's no need for a special net.  I use my HEB green crab net and toss it upside down and dump them right in.  There's the occasional tangle around the spines, but still never been pinched.  The chicken wire thing seems like it would rust pretty quick.  How's it holding up?

I like using the wire net and it hasn't rusted yet. I have plenty more to replace it. LOL I have the green HEB net too. The answer is a bit late but better late than never.Smiley

Well my wife, daughter and I will be heading to "Maker 37" hopefully next weekend. It's next to Snoopy's restaurant close to the island -flour bluff area. We'll see how it goes. Grin

Went crabbing last week at the pier marker 37. We saw people fishing and we were the only people crabbing. We had fun but caught many brown bumpy stone looking crabs instead of blue crabs which onlt totalled four in all. Hurricane IKE has messed up the beach areas and has brought in some weird nasty creatures to Corpus Christi. 

We had fun anyway.

I've noticed a lot more stone crabs around this year.  I think it's pretty fun to supplement my blues catch with a few good sized stone claws.  There's a LOT less picking to get all the meat, and done right they're mighty tasty.  I haven't put the two in the same bucket ever, but that might be an interesting fight to watch...if I was in to that sort of thing.  I like the fight where I win every time.  All the same, crabbing in Corpus is incredible all year long.

Does anyone on here know where you can buy blue crabs in Corpus Christi. My parents live on the island and they can't find anyone (even in Flour Bluff) that sale them. Thanks! Smiley

Sounds like the kids growing up a little.  It's easy to be tough on the web isn't it?  laugh
