I wonder what some of those Merrylanders, who think that taking female crabs is is man's greatest atrocities against nature, would think of NCDMFs latest proclamation.
(and yet we have plenty of crabs...go figure)

We have closer Ocean access to cleaner water too...I think the water quality helps very much... We also have way more smaller (2-4 inch)crabs then Maryland does too..

I also think they do this procalmation for that area every year, also so the crabber can pull in peelers via that method.....BUT I think to the end of April, you can't keep any females over 6 3/4" point to point
