You wanted to know the best months for crabbing in Bristol? It basically depends on the water temperature. They usually start showing up late June, early July, with the best months (for numbers ) being August and September. I have the best luck when I start with an outgoing tide through the low tide. Hope that helps.

Before you try crabbing at night, check the R.I. laws. If I'm not mistaken, you can only crab between sunup and sundown.

Tell me about it. Now they are starting to charge for a salt water fishing license. A shellfishing version is probably soon to follow once the state realizes that they can make a buck or two.

Tell me about it, I live here and I'm a painter,  If your a resident you can crab for free, all others pay. Their is no crabbing at night in RI, every year they bust someone for it, those [dang] clam cops. What do the current Mass. regs Say about non resident night crabbing?        Quag
