Went out on the water to explore at 1pm today had allot fun just boating around, found an old boat that was sunk. Later today I picked up my friend Garry with his ring traps totaling 6 traps. Grin we went crabbing the Creek was jam packed full of crabbers. I pulled over by one guy and we talked about how his day was crabbing. He was a very nice guy, he told us that we could have his spot because he was leavening. He ended up with maybe 2 doz the whole day. We crabbed some at his spot until my friendís cousin came down and wanted to handlines at the Elisabeth landing pier we I took the traps near there and my friend and I would dock there while waiting for the traps. I got allot of experience docking today.  Smiley The engine runs very well. It has improved allot, thanks Jack the Sea foam has been doing its job. Ended up the day with 6-7 males one female which we took back to the pier to show his cousin what one looks like then released it. The crabs are waiting to be steamed in my friendís refrigerator with about a 7 more crabs. Were steaming them tomorrow. To late now. By the way I sported my new BCA sticker! Cool

Dr Phildo what is up with that area? There are two marinas right next to each other, one is a really old marina with allot of project house boats, and the other is a newer marina?

Thats in Nabbs Creek.....I know where that is now. That marina is full of boats that should be burried at sea...LoL

Have you ever crabbed in Nabbs Creek...I looked around that area and never found a nice sandy bottom to crab on, it was mostly muddy back there.

Actually I think you were in Nabbs Creek where all the old boats are.  Not sure what's up with that.  We crab near a big boat that looks just like that in the Stoney and I thought that's what you took a pic of.

I thought the waterway was al Stony Creek until you come out to the Patapsco River. That was a first I went back there, the biggest boat I could thin of around Stony creek is the Grey Goose. But no unless you count dropping two traps in there for an hour while you put around crabbing. Although I did see someone in an allot bigger Jon boat crab in Nabs Creek. I don't know how well but they were right near that Marina.

I have always done better on a sandy bottom. Whenever I set gear and there is a muddy bottom I move it.

Next time we go crabbin, we need to go back in to Nabbs.  Bring your toolkit and we'll unbolt that captains chair from that junker.  It would look good on your flat bottom aluminum..

I also heard that the Stony was WAYYY over-crowded this weekend with pots and trot everywhere.  One of my neighbors got in at 6AM on Saturday and came back around 11 AM just a few crabs short of a packed bushel. 

And the comms guy that lives in my neighborhood got 3 bushels out by the Key Bridge on Saturday morning.

My wife and I crabbed the chester saturday.  Were between churchmens creek and Kent narrows.  Overboard at 6.00  On site at 6.20.  We crabbed till 12.00 and barely got three-quarters of a bushel of mediocre crabs.  I think the comm. crabbers are crabbing that river to death just like the virginians do.  So sad.  I started going to the chester in 1969, and it has gone way down hill since.

Just out of curiosity, why did or would you add to this post a report or comment about a completely different river/creek, plus from a different side of the bay as well?HuhHuh   What am I missing here?Huh

To answer the question about crabbing in Nabbs.....I took my wife (yes my wife) HA HA back in Nabbs Creek so she could get practice running the trotline in a nice calm creek.  We caught about half a bushel of the biggest GD crabs I have ever seen.  It was unreal!  After that day, I got all geared up thinking I found this awsome honey hole.  Went back that weekend and had no luck at all. Dont know if it was a freak thing or what but thats been my experience and 2 cents.  Good luck
