Hi my name is Chris. again im new to this site. I live in south jersey about an hour west of ocean city. Just wanted to know when is the best time to start crabbin?..last july i went crabbin in LBI and everything we caught was small. This year i wanted to start crabbing often in the ocean city or LBI area wherever is better. Also wanted to know if anyone knows how to make homemade crab cages using supplies from a local homedepot or lowes..if not ill just buy a few more cages..i got 3 right now i bought in LBI. If anyone could please just message or email me about when to start crabbing or how to make cages i would really appreciate it.. Thanks alot Guys look forward to talkin n sharing stories on this site

Watch the water temps.  June seems to be a good start.  I'm going to try April or May this year just to get out for a bit.  Cape May usually starts up first.  What kind of traps are you looking to make and how many?

Beasleys Point Power Plant is typically the place to be early in the season when the crabs aren't yet moving anywhere else.

Do you have a boat, rent, or crab from shore?  I start late April in the back creeks by boat and, though slow, it gets me out of the house.  I started to go down the path of making traps but, for small quantities getting the right materials it's almost as expensive as buying them.

Crabs small in LBI?  Sounds alittle farfetched.  I live right near there and we do very well out in Barnegat and Manahawkin Bay.  Just have to know the right spots to go I guess.  But if you are looking  for help this site benifets a lot.  There pretty much isnt any question you cant ask that some good person from here cant help you with.     Again Welcome To BCA and good luck this season

Welcome aboard !!  This site has something for the beginner, avid rec crabber and commercial.   I would suggest to purchase some topless traps from some of the sites sponsors. Do both a search on both here and google earth on the navasink river. Crabbing is generally good there in July. there are two rental boat places there. That should keep you in crabs this summer,til you venture in other areas.

You said you just made a donation, trust me it's money well spent. Now start doing some research using the search feature and get to know the site intimately. It was this site(the people on it) that took me from a casual crabber to a pretty competent chicken necker.

In addition to jersey, I also crab in Maryland and use my 30 traps and 1,000ft trottline.  any more questions just ask Smiley   NOW GET TO STUDYING !  Grin
