Morning folks.   I am down at CB with the family this week and would love to show the in-laws the fun of sitting around and crabbing all day. Any idea where I can go around here?   I have drop lines and traps, but no boat. 
Thanks. 
Chris.

There is a road ( river road ) on the mainland side of the Snow's cut bridge. Follow that road approx 4-5 miles and there is a public park on the river with a dock that you can crab off of. Also- there is some bank access there as well that is good.

I'm very sorry to hear that and certainly did not mean to mis-lead you. I have been there several times before and have done quite well. I haven't been this year to that place. I mainly crab at Topsail/ Surf City. I'll be there this evening until Monday- crabbing- fishing.

If anyone is looking for any other places on Carolina Beach, head down to Kure Beach to the old Army/Air Force reserve base, Fort Fisher.  There is a public pier that is pretty good there for crabbing and fishing.

I was at Topsail/ Surf City over the weekend and ended up with 94 keepers in 3 days. I was not off of a pier or dock. I set out 12 crab pots.

 Is that place open to the general public? It's not strictly for military personnel?

The same place mentioned about should still have some crabsd around. I think if your using the colapsible traps that your unlimited as to how many you can use. If the boat ramp is not crowded at Snow's Cut- you might try there or close to there if people are launching. Also- if you don't mind riding to Fort Fisher- you can try all around there near that boat ramp and not have to worry about much current at all.

The place mentioned above was the public park off of River road which is about 4 miles from the Snow's cut bridge. If you google map it- it will show you the road and the park there. There is a canoe / kayak launch area there unless they have improved it in the past several years. There was a small pier there with good crabbing and also along the bank- its pretty deep in places and those are good. With these cooler nights they may have moved out some but I would think there should still be some around + the mosquitos hopefully aren't bad. Pray for a little breeze as the no-see-ums can be awful there at times
