What is generally the best tide to catch crabs that you all have noticed? Just based on when crabs tend to act hungry, and not based on depth of your traps since you can just moved them to the desired depth? I'm wondering if it's best at peak high tide, peak low tide, or in the middle as the tide shifts from high-to-low, or vice verse? I'm new here and would appreciate any advice y'all can give me. Thanks.

It's best to catch crabs before, during, and after a high tide.

As long as the tide is moving, you'll catch crabs.

I don't see any differance but I am still fairly new to crabbing. Only been messing with them 4-5yrs.

If it starts getting slow I put new necks in all my traps and it seems to pick right back up.
