Just wait until O'Malley allowes DNR to fly Drones around all the Rec and Commerical Crabbers.. Grin Grin

We already have the next best thing - Queen Anne's County got a gyrocopter from the DHS and the guy that's assigned to it really has nothing to do, so he's always buzzing around trying to see what people are doing.

Luckily, the only things I've had to upset me thus far was stupid stuff I've done. Like not putting enough tension on my line when setting it out....or getting my anchor line wrapped around my prop.

How about the guy that has his buddy back the trailer down the ramp and block everyone else while their boat is no where close to being ready to load up. Then they look at you (me) like I'm the biggest a-hole on the planet for asking if they need any help getting loaded up. However, like previous posters, once you get out on the water, all the troubles of the day are gone and there's no better way to relax and have fun.

Another thing, catching pleanty of #1's but they're junk. 

I love the thought of going crabbing, absolutely hate it from the second I wake up at 1:30 until the boat is back on the trailer.

I crab a lot from shore so my experiences may be different...

1. People who are filthy slobs and do not pick up their trash, especially when trash cans are available within walking distance.

2. Ignorant parents who do not tell their kids not to touch your crab trap lines while watching them do it.

3. Busy bodies who always just want to know "how you are doing" so they do not have to put the effort in figuring out when to put traps in. [I don't give straight answers]

4. Morons who get caught trying to keep undersized crabs and attract the NJDEP to monitor your area more frequently.

5. Environmental nutcases who call the NJDEP thinking I am one of those morons.

6. Drunks or idiots in general who offer "advice".

7. Lowlifes who check other people's pots.

8. Tourists who want to show their kids what a crab looks like ("you don't mind..." [No I am really not out here trying to relax but setup to entertain your kids for free]).

I'll go along with #s 1, 2, 4, , 7...

#5 needs more info...

 As far as #3...well, If you are doing good, and you tell them, they may drop in on top of you=bad...If you are doing bad, what hurt is it telling them?? They may just tell YOU where or what to try different?? A little conversation can go a long way...I've got some great tips up Tuckerton way like this..

.#6 can go either way, BUT there are a lot of drunk idiot crabbers Grin

#8  ?? What does it hurt to let some little kids see your crabs?? Come on, you sound like me...A grumpy old man Grin

This site is much the same...People wait until they KNOW the crabs are active nowadays...Sure, 55* is a temp that can be used, but a solid report is MUCH better..As far as where to go etc, read reports here...

With that list of dislikes, I find it hard that you enjoy crabbing at all Wink Take care and have FUN...

I've seen people who do not think anyone should be crabbing and so intentionally give people a hard time by calling the NJDEP whether the call is legitimate or not. I don't think people should take undersized crabs but I am not going to call the "police" on them least of all without being 100% sure.

As far as #3...well, If you are doing good, and you tell them, they may drop in on top of you=bad...If you are doing bad, what hurt is it telling them?? They may just tell YOU where or what to try different?? A little conversation can go a long way...I've got some great tips up Tuckerton way like this..
I'm sure it could go the other way but so far the odds have been that they drop in on top of you.

#8  ?? What does it hurt to let some little kids see your crabs?? Come on, you sound like me...A grumpy old man Grin
This is from personal experiences. They can turn into #5's if they do not know the minimum legal size while eyeballing "small" 4.5-5 inch crabs in your bucket asking, "aren't they too small?" or when you appear to have "injured" a crab while trying to shake an undersized death-grip one off your trap and it decides at the most inconvenient time to detach it's claws or suicide into the metal bulkhead below [crack] - all while the parents and kid(s) watch in "horror".

This site is much the same...People wait until they KNOW the crabs are active nowadays...Sure, 55* is a temp that can be used, but a solid report is MUCH better..As far as where to go etc, read reports here...
Many of the reports are "went back to my favorite spot" types. The reports are excellent to know when to begin and such but not necessarily exactly where to go.

With that list of dislikes, I find it hard that you enjoy crabbing at all Wink Take care and have FUN...
I enjoy crabbing very much when left alone or just with friends and family, which is why I go to quieter locations at times very few people are likely to be there.

That all depends on the availability of crabs and whether it's a holiday or not.  laugh

I'm so lucky to have a private pier to crab from. I hate all the things you listed above. In Maryland most people on the pier don't speak English either.
