This time of year the crabs are starting to wake from their winter dormancy and heading for the warmer (shallow) waters of creeks and rivers. Water temps must reach 59 degrees F. before they'll come up out of the mud. Waters up in Maryland might be too cold yet for the majority of crabs to come up.

Things will really start to swing in early to mid May (crabbing lore has it that the first full moon in May is the start of the peeler run -- see this page for more information on this: http://www.blue-crab.org/fullmoon.htm)

If I were you, I'd give it another month then try your hand at crabbing. I'd have to say that by June/July would be the best time to start.

Steve is right on the money and I think unless we get a real hot spell early, it might be a little later this year before you have much chance of catching anything.  even with traps of rings, I don't think there will much action yet.  That first full moon in May is a good starting point.

Take care and if you do go out, be safe out there!
