Let water temps be your guide. At least 50, even a bit higher b/f I even begin prospecting Wink  But it's never a bad time for boat ride on a nice day!  Grin  Good luck!

Could be hit or miss.  Up until 2 years ago I would have said you can't catch crabs in NJ until the summer months.  Then we had a great catch in May.  All depends on the water temps.  If the air is warm and the sun is hot, you could try some back bays and creeks.  Crabs will be moving there earlier as the water heats up quicker than the main bays.  Good luck  Wink

Right.   Two years ago, we got close to two bushels in NJ on May 1st.    Last year on the last day of April, we got four crabs.

Speaking of "boat" rides Rusty, have you decided to end your rental days and finally pick one up this year?

It's setting up to be a bunker harvest!   Huh   Shocked   Undecided   laugh

I have decided to end my rental days, I even have my boaters safety certificate......but the wallet says otherwise at this point  Cry  Had a couple of truck repairs come up this past winter, transfer case rebuild and put a new clutch in as it was the original and we had it all apart. So i'll have to postpone my boat purchase for a bit, it seems that it's always somethin....but I definitely will get it done! I still havent made a decision yet....but I've been looking at the Scott Canoe Duck Boat 16, fiberglass concerns me though, maybe it shouldn't......check it out at the following link. I appreciated your feedback in the past!

That's nice, though I'm more in favor of aluminum for ease of transport.  I guess you would have to set it up for additional seating.  

If you're looking for a cartopper, there are some nice free plans for a 12' plywood duck boat, and it's super light, 110 lbs.

Yep, I'm leaning to alum myself, not only for the weight savings, but I'm somewhat concerned about maintenance......without a doubt I know I'm going to bang up that fiberglass. I'd like to get a minumum of 3 people aboard, and possibly even a 4th....but fact of the matter is that it will be 2 mostly. But that Scott proved interesting due to it's 200lb hull weight and 1200lb capacity. But honestly there are alot of good options out there both new and used. I'll keep doing my homework though until the funds free up...fingerscrossed  Smiley

I appreciate your feedback!

I just reread your post, I didn't realize you were looking at the 16' model, that's a lot of glass, looks like they say about 360 lbs, that seems light to me.  I guess a same size avg. aluminum would be in the high 200 lb to low 300 range.

I'm not sure what they're talking when they say 1200 capacity,  is that persons, motor, & gear???

I take 1200lb weigh to mean it includes people, motor, gear, etc. I believe it to be the "displacement weight", ie the amount of weight it takes to sink it. I'll wait to hear from more experienced boaters in this regard....as I'm not certain.
