Hi,
I am just trying to understand the point of crabbing reports with specific locations, etc.. spelled out.  I see a post for the Severn with well over a 1,000 views.  One for the Wye with close to a 1,000.  Shipping Creek 300 +, etc.....   Does everyone see what this does each year?  It creates a swarm on the chosen creek or bay.  Ramps are overloaded, there is no place to park, no place to crab, etc..  So to help me a little...   You have a decent trip and catch some crabs with your family and friends.  AWESOME! You get home, sign on and tell 1,000 plus strangers exactly what happened.  Is the hope and intent that when you go back the following weekend you will not be able to even remotely get near the spot again until the crabs are cleaned out? 

I have watched many spots over the last few years just get over-run with crabbers beyond the capacity of the facility and the crabs in the creek.  The obvious answer are detailed posts...

Not bashing....  Just trying to understand it all because it makes no sense to me.  This isn't talking to your buddy about a good trip you had.  You just put the details of a good crabbing spot up on the internet.  So guess what will happen?Huh  Not to mention the intense strain put upon the resource.

Thanks

Well, I guess if no one shared information and tried to help each other, then there would not be a crabbing forum. Huh

Actually there would not be a forum about any topic on the net. Actually there would be no internet! Undecided

so this was your first post - telling everybody to shut up Sad Sad

why give any information at all- like rigging, bait, boats, motors etc etc... it all helps the competition and potentially takes crabs away from you

he11, they shouldn't even make maps because it all helps other people  laugh laugh laugh

interesting first post  Grin Grin Grin welcome aboard and you don't have to post any useful or helpful information  laugh laugh laugh laugh

Come on guys,he made a great point,nothing wrong with sharing a little general info but everyone one you know that if somebody posts that he caught 2 bushels of big crabs in Loyds creeks by 9 that by next weekend you will have to have DNR directing traffic on the water there. The Media started doing it about 20 years ago and here Fla Sportsman Magazine has totally destroyed every good local fishing spot in the state and if a hot spot come up the local fishing reports in local papers take care of it the next weekend.
We have a fishing forum here with over 2000 members and these guys have learned that if you post the name of a creek you caught fish in don't bother to go back.

I really don't think that people read these posts and run down to an area the next day, all at once.  And so what if they did.  The average person doesn't crab hard like most of us here and probably wouldn't catch enough to make an inpact on the population in that area.  So I don't think you have anything to worry about.  And another thing, there is no such thing as a "secret spot" these days anyway.

Dear Newbie when crabs are running that HOT they tend to be in at least a 15 mile area......it's pretty rare that you will kill em in one spot and come up empty just 3 miles down the road.

I can understand you might not want to tell about an exact spot but i don't see anything wrong with talking about general areas.

I use to know a GREAT place on long island the morons knocked the pier down and rebuilt it.
problem? when they rebuilt it they made it like 60 ft high.......smart huh ?

GOOD news ? I know of at least 3 or 4 other spots.

Masspi, I used to put an X marking the hotspots in the water like in your picture, but I found that weather and waves, etc.  would wash it away...now I mark my hotspots by putting a big red X in the bottom of the boat where mother nature can't get to it....Wink

Look at what  happened to Mariner Point last year.  This year will be worse.  Trucks and trailors parked on grass, in front of "no parking" signs, cops everywhere and staff that has no idea on how to control it.  Wouldn't be surprised to see ramp fees and closed gates soon.  Share and help when you can, but the man has a point.

 in my view  the info on this board has almost nothing to do over crowding at any particular place or spot in md waters. everywhere i go even when i stay in my own back yard it's to crowded because there are to many people and in some cases not enough acsess. from what i can see rec crabbing has increased alot just in the last 5 yearsand i'm not trying to start an argument just saying what i see. on the comm. side the lic. have been limited for a while and will be more soon . as the popultation grows so will this problem get used to it.

Welcome aboard F250..  I am afraid that I agree with you also.  Take your best friend to your secret spot.  Next time you can't go he will take a friend.  Then the friend takes a friend....... It's just human nature..  It is also human nature for some folks to want to keep it all to themselves.  I know folks on this board that just want to share everything with everybody.. That is the way they are.  That is why they post.  People want to tell folks, "Look what I have done!"  My 2 cents...  Cool
