This is a great resource for everything crabbing!  My family and I will be in Smithfield, VA visiting my Mother over the Memorial Day weekend.  I would like to take my 4 year old son out crabbing.  I remember crabbing when I was a teenager and recall it being a lot of fun.  I think my little guy would have a great time!  We are completely inexperienced but as I recall it really wasn't that hard.  We are interested in doing some line crabbing from the shore/dock somewhere near Smithfield, VA area.  I think we have all the equipment we need, i.e line, weights, net, bucket, and bait-chicken necks.  We just need some suggestions of places to go!  Anybody been to Nike Park?  Any advice or suggestions to help us have a good time are greatly appreciated!  Thanks!

The is an access spot on the other side of the bridge at the Smithfield station that provides limited parking and access which MIGHT be good.   At least it provides access where you were looking. 

Also there is a pier at Jones Creek Boat ramp in Isle of Wright County which is in that general neighborhood.

Don't know if either is all that good or bad just that they are access points.
