Hi guys,
I am coming to Onancock, Va for a few days with wife and kids. Rented a house on Holly Creek Cove Rd?? The house is on the water and has a dock, is it worth it to bring  my crabbing gear? Would mostly be using hand lines with the kids off the dock and small boat? Any advice would be appreciated.
Thanks
Tom

There are crabs there.  You shouldn't have a problem catching a meal or two...  Wink

Thanks for your replies. I plan on bringing. Some hand line and a few pull traps, bunker will be served Smiley

Looking forward to crabbing in southern waters, have always heard the Chesapeake was good but being such a large body of water I am sure there are better spots than others.

Thank you for the information, clams would be terrific...behind the house there appears to be a shoaled up area, hopefully we find some authentic cherrystones!!! Leaving Thursday and back next week, I will report my catch.

Leaving Onancock today, fun little trip.....could definitely spend a few days here. Tons of crabs....problem I had is a lot were small- we got a dozen or two but the house we rented had very shallow water and was not bringing in the bug guys and the ferocious minnows were destroying the baits. My wife kayaked to channel and said there were tons of pots.  My wife and I both said that next trip down we need to either bring our boat or rent one. Not enough to do around here without a boat. I don't think I have ever seen so many crabs in my life as here, while the ones I saw were small we all know they grow. You can also buy them very cheap, bushels of females was $50, bushel of males was $70. Clams at 100 for $22 or 50 at $12. Ate a bunch!! Thanks again for the info.
