I'm real sorry to hear this! The crabs are around. What were you using for bait?

On the two bridges in New Smyrna you will only catch a lot of crabs starting two hours into the incoming tide until it gets full. You might get two or three at best on the outgoing tide.

Thanks for the posts. Shellfish - I was using chicken necks as bait.
Gnifrus- I actually crabbed the time you stated and still only caught one.

I'm going to try a new spot we were told about last week, very near the N. Causeway.   If I catch anything I'll update you with the info.

We were too late, the tide was too far out last week but the people who showed us this dock had caught some nice sized females and a couple of nice flounder, too.  They were using chicken and salt cod for bait (never tried the salt cod thing before).

Witch1031 - Thanks for post.  I look forward to hear how your new spot works out.
I'm  going to give it a try again this weekend. Has anyone had any luck crabbing at night?
Thanks again!

I've never caught any at night but the only spot we've tried it is Kennedy Park in Edgewater.   

All we caught were shrimp for bait and a couple of channel catfish.  One stone crab out of season.  I hear the trout are biting at night.  Smiley

North Causeway Park Fishing Pier.  It is just before you get to the N. Causeway to the south as you are heading east.

There is a small path that leads down to the dock. 

I only caught six keepers and a total of five sailor's choice that we turned into bait.  The water is very shallow there at low tide, if you try it you want to wait until you're close to high tide or it isn't worth the time.

It is very rocky there so beware.  Good luck!
