I'm planning to go crabbing on 7/4~7/5 at VA
I found out I should start before sunrise or at dusk by looking at this forum.
How big are the crabs at VA?
I'm going cape charles, VA
Is VA better or MD better around this time?

Jae, believe you have the right idea doing your crabbing in Virginia on 7/4-7/5.  The crabs in the middle and northern Chesapeake Bay just haven't turned on yet.  Weather too cool, water too cool, and too much rain.  Your chances of getting more and larger crabs in the Virginia tidal areas are much better at this time of the year.  Of course, when the temperatures and water warm up, the entire Chesapeake Bay has the finest blue crabs in the world!  Forecast is for temperatures in the 90's next week up here in the Annapolis, Maryland area.  Good luck and good crabbing.

Well, Brian, it SHOULD be good now. However, too much precipitation and cool temperatures has effected crabbing to the point that not many are to be had yet. We have some hot weather moving in this week (90's) which should help to warm up the shallows and get the crabs moving.  So, in a nut shell, if you just want to go crabbing you can do it now.  If you want to go crabbing and catch crabs, well, I'd wait until mid-July or, perhaps sooner, if we have a long stretch of warm weather and bright sunny days.  Good luck.
