General report from a bunch of crabbers, shop owners and boat rental places from the bay in Seaside park to the Mantalokin bridge..  The crabs are running at its best.  Even the skiffs are pulling in bushels of crabs.

Hit the moving tide, Incoming is best, but outgoing is also fairing very, very well.  Stay away from 1/2 hour before and after slack tide. 

From what I have experienced so far, this is the best start in many years for this area.

Now is the time to get out there and catch'em up.

ps.  use chicken.  The bluefish are tearing up the bunker and making it impossible to catch  crabs and you will only be wasting your money on Bunker, but bunker is the top choice in the commercial pots.

I am down here all summer now and literately had to pull out my crab posts because I have more then I know what to do with, with hand lines alone. I am having a weekend BBQ though, and will be soaking 4 pots on Thursday for a Friday lift.  I will report results at that time.

OH.. and before the internet cops chime in, both myself and my brother have a permit, each that allows us 2 pots for a total of 4 soaking pots, just in case someone wants to challenge this tread. 

See ya on the water.. Luna Sea 5

Nice report!   Grin   Are the slammer blues still in the bay, or is it the smaller ones now?

last week the slammers made another appearance by Dock Outfitters.. Since then, no reports.  Now the schoolies are in.. about 1 to 3 lbs

I'll be taking the wife and kids on one of those Dock Outfitter skiffs next week. Thanks for the tip about the necks. Any suggestions where to get them on the island instead of bunker?

Actually, Riverpop is right.    It's a resource post about general Barnegat bay crabbing conditions last week as opposed to a specific report about a crabbing trip, like your LS5 reports you posted recently.      As such, it's been moved to resources.
