As always the crabs along this part of the river are female.  The water is very salty.  Salty water = girl crabs.

I actually went out on Friday the 15th, just a quick stop on my way home from work.   Caught six crabs in 2 hours but the tide was against me.

Went back yesterday, July 17th.   Using chicken legs and wire nets.   Tossed my nets, walked back to the car to get my fishing pole and pulled them in when I returned. 2 crabs in one net, 2 fish in the other.  A good sign.   Wink

I caught 26 crabs yesterday.  1 went back in because she was bearing eggs.   1 climbed out of my old box trap that my uncle made me.    I was there about 4 hours.  Caught 9 fish, too!  (no keepers)

I took a walk down the fishing dock on the north causeway on 7-13-16 and there were about 30 lines in the water from five people crabbing.
They were catching crabs the last of the outgoing tide. I only looked at one five gallon bucket 2/3 full after four hours of crabbing.

I think it's time to bring my topless traps over there!

I normally stay on the small dock.   Try the NE corner, there is a good drop off between the dock and the small sandbar you can see at low tide.

Why not crab somewhere with less females?

Why not complain somewhere else?  Do you wake up every morning and make it your quest to save every female crab out there?  If you really cared about crabs you'd release them all.  Catch and release right?  You're probably a poacher.

Because as far as I can tell, the crabs in the fresher water around here are full of pepper spot disease.  But thanks for your concern.

PS I caught 23 more females on Saturday 07/30/16.   Tongue
