I've been working the same 10-12' of water for a couple months, and been getting in and out quick. But for the last 2 weeks, it is taking 3 times as long to get 2 thirds of the crabs. Is this about the moon, rain, or Have they moved?

Try shallow water 4'-6'.  Crabs are beginning to really double up this time of year.

This is how it's going to go.  After I kick your A$$ i'm going to run you through the wood chipper and put you in containers in the freezer to use in my crab pots!  The really sad part?  You let an old man kick your A$$!!!

This time of year (august) I have always noticed crabs to move to shallower and more grassy locations to spawn. I always go off a dock that is right in path off a grassy location that is a bout 2-3 feet deep and the span is like 3-4 football fields! It's an awesome area for wading.For you boaters try to cut them off at small inlets that lead into marshy areas where the crabs will be going to spawn.

if you mean spawn like in lay eggs, that only happens in very salty water.  In the chesapeake a sook must migrate to the mouth of the bay to spawn. http://www.blue-crab.org/spawning.htm
