I'm heading down to Chincoteague this weekend and thought about doing some crabing on Friday over at Memerial Park.(Give the wife and kid something to do while I check the lines and the Trap), is it still to cold?  I saw a post that said in Assateague it was too cold and no crabs caught.  Is it worth my time and effort?

Thanks in advance.

It might be still a little cold to catch a lot of crabs but you might  catch a dozen or two. With the weather being 80 degrees all week the water should worm up pretty quick. Hopefully.  Wink Some one that lives closer could have a better answer. Good luck if you go crabbing.

I crab commercially on the Chincoteague bay. This weekend will be the height of the first peeler run and most of the males will be doubled up by the weekend. They have something else on their mind besides food. Good luck. The wtaer temp is fine. We have been catching good for over 2 weeks.

FYI I was in Chincoteague this weekend and only caught 3 male blue crabs, and about a half dozen pregnanat females, and a few small minnows.  But on the positive side, I caught a 20" and 17.5" flounder and 7 more that were under 15".  

Maybe in a few weeks the crabs will want to come out and play.
