Last weekend I went up to NJ and went crabbing for the first time since I was a kid. It didn't take long for me to remember how much fun it was. I think I was out for about 2 hours or so early in the day and caught maybe a dozen total. By no means was it a day for the record books, but it did bring back a lot of fun memories.

Now that I am back home in FL I am looking to enjoy the adventure again. My family is heading out to Cocoa Beach in a few weeks and I was hoping to try and steal a couple hours to try and catch some crabs. Any suggestions of where to go would be very appreciated, as well as where to find a good local bait shops.

Thanks in advance.

I hear the 528 beachline bridge just west of Port Canaveral are good potentials. I've yet to confirm this spot though.

I drive there all the time, and it looks pretty good for crabbing actually. I'm not sure but you might get a lot of stone crab along with blue crab though, so make sure the traps are in good working order or the stone crab will rip through the trap. They are much stronger and heavier than blue crabs.

I vaguely know the area there. Is there a specific landmark to look for?
