 Vacationing near Mobjack Bay next week near East river. Will pick up license once in Va. We plan to run a trot line. Are clams better than necks. Has crabbing been ok down there? Any info would be appreciated.

Thanks

I've had good days in the Severn this time of year in years past. No experience with clams.. Hope you do well and leave a report.  Grin

Going in morning. Is there a distance minimum between my gear and someone elses?

Not aware of any distance requirements. I don't crowd crab pots as I don't want to tangle with them, but there's plenty of water out there. One thing for sure is you won't have to worry about laying your line across anyone else's line. Grin Good luck, and hope you have a good day!

Well got one day in. With pots everywhere we found the creek leading out from the ramp to have the most area. Staggered two 300 lines with chicken necks. After a few runs it was evident crabs were at deep end. I drug them out into the river to 10 where we got a few dozen legal crabs. Did get a few stares from crabbers checking pots. Had fun got enough for the family to eat. Beautiful area

Thanks for sharing this report! I didn't realize people don't really use trot lines in the Virginia waters -- what's up with that? Is it because recreational crabbers can use pots?
