Hello all!

My dad and I have been crabbing and fishing since I can remember up and down the Delaware Bay / Maurice River / Dividing Creek areas.  We have a small 14' Carolina Skiff to drop in and go. I've recently have been spending a lot of time in North Cape May (Town Bank) area.  I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions where we could possibly drop the boat in that area and find some good spots to crab (and fish) I'm assuming in the back bays.  This would be a new adventure this year so any suggestions would be awesome.  Thanks in advance and happy crabbing this season!  laugh

Spicers Creek Boat Access is a free public ramp at the entrance to Cape May as soon as you cross over the Canal bridge.  The ramp is on the right just behind the row of buidings on the right.  Never crabbed the area.

Take a right in the canal out of spicers creek, under the bridge, and motor through the 3rd marina on left (sorry don't know name, I think HarborView - check it out on google earth), and under the bridge at end of the marina.  That'll put you in the back bay behind Wildwood.  Have done fairly well over the years back in there, but its hard work to scratch out half a bushel.  Goodluck.

Make a left off the spicer creek ramp and head up the creek past the marinas.  It brings me a few dozen plus on my annual cape may trip in July.  Water depth runs from 3' to 10' and there's no boat traffic to deal with either.  Anchor in the middle or run a string, either way should produce.  Have fun!

I don't know much about the crabbing in Cape May, but the scallops sure are good. The houses are kinda creepy too Grin.
