Got a rental place for long weekend with family. Laid 1000 ft trotline with chicken necks over 7-10 feet of water and 2 doz traps varying depths.  Incoming tide.  Ended up with TWELVE crabs.  Fortunately one of them was the biggest we've ever caught, about 1/16th shy of 8 inches.  In area of DeCoursey cove.

Hoping to get some help.  Don't need specific coordinates, but do I need to be further upriver or downriver?  Different depth?  Different bait?  Different tide? 

Ay help is appreciated.  Pm me if u want to keep it quiet.  If I'm not on the crabs tomorrow, there will be a mutiny.

Looks like from the reports its hit or miss.....mostly miss unless I'm missing some reports. Wish I could help, I've been crabbing the chester and its been real slow but is starting to pick up, this time last yr a bushel wasn't hard to get. Good luck, I'm sure somebody can get u on them

Yup, hit or miss everywhere right now.  Try to pick up and move somewhere else.  Any one good location changes with the tide, rain, and heat so dont think this is one better than another to offer.

I usually crab 2 or 3 times a week.  So far this year I've crabbed the Chester, a couple different creeks off Prospect Bay, the Gunpowder and the Bush...  What you read above explains this year to a tee!  dozen crabs one trip to 1/2 bushel the next to less than a dozen to 3/4 bushel.  Sort of like the stock market, very inconsistent and no way to predict it from day to day, no matter what location you're in.

Was in the same area last week and had the same results. We moved out the river but that made no difference. Going to give it a week.
