I crabbed out of Bogles on saturday and did a little better than most I talked to. Crabbed from 9am to 1pm with 20 traps and necks.  We had one throw back and sixteen jimmy's all 7"-8".  The crabs were amazing FULL of meat.

The crab was so big his claw cut my gas line in half and I had to swim back to the dock!

Tattoo, it is the end of June!  Time flies, there are only five days left this month.  Hopefully the Chester turns on this coming weekend.

Thats the Chester for you.  Crabs bounce around almost daily.  If you have crabs in one area, don't expect them to be there next week. 

I don't see how the comms there make that much money, catching between 1-4 bushels.

The Chester is my regular crabbing spot for the last ten years. I have always done much better from middle of July on. June crabbing in the Chester has always been off and on. Can't figure it out.

bctcpa is correct. Wink


I dont start in the Chester until Mid-August and will stay there until Halloween.

Not saying you cant catch crabs before then but if you want consistent numbers crabbing before August its a waste of time.

Also, remember the Chester is a large river. I crab a feeder creek way up in the Chester. The Chester out by the mouth and narrows will turn on by July but I like the little creeks mostly to stay out of the wind.

I drive 1hr 30 min. each way, so I need to catch at least a bushel of quality crabs for it to be worth the trip.

A bushel packed so full it distorts the basket shape and lid. Same as Lid bender
