Hello crab experts,

I found a nice spot with big crabs last week and I managed to catch some. It was a creek estuary.

Next week, I went to the same spot and I catched almost nothing: only a couple of very small (baby) crabs and nothing else.

How common is this? Any explanations?

Full moon was the 14th.  Could'a been a peeler run..  If so crabs are thinking love not food.

Thanks for your reply, but isn't that a myth? https://www.bluecrab.info/fullmoon.htm

Sunday 6/19 was not a good day for crabs.  Was that the off day?

I went on Tuesday 21th. I am located in Greece (however full moon happens the same day worldwide.)

My wife insists that we caught all the big crabs  laugh I believe this is unlikely (we caught only 6  Grin)

So basically I am asking this: how common is to go to your usual fishing spot an catch almost nothing?

LOL, I have no idea then.   But I guess the adage of: its called fishing not catching may apply around the globe!

Update: went today to the same spot, I was able to get same decent crabs  Smiley

The weird thing is that, all of them were females. (Last time I was getting only males.)

That could have something to do with the salinity of the water. Boys and girls don't like the same levels.
