Hi All!
I'm new here.  We have family visiting and thinking about going crabbing.  Looking for a few suggestions on when and where.  I've heard the Lesner Bridge is a good site to go to.  What time of day is usually most successful?

Thanks for any help!

OK,
We saw a lot of pregnants and small ones.  There were plenty of large ones, too though. We took home 18 crabs (remember that we're not very experienced, and had 2 kids with ADD with us!  Checking traps every 10 seconds probably diminished our catch, too!).  There was a guy there who filled a 5 gal pail while we were there.   He was working 3 baskets (shaped like a frisbee kind of thing).  I'm going to try going to Rudee inlet in the next couple days. 

Let me ask, I have a 10 foot portabote with a trolling motor.  That should be OK, no?

Thanks,
