I think Corpus as about as far south as the members go. The other end of your island.

Craig any idea why that would be?  Is the crabbing not productive down there?  I'll let you know what I find when I get there in Nov.  Never done it before but I think I've learned enough from this forum to make a good attempt at it.

We don't have a lot of members on the forum from the south.  Most members are up around Maryland. 

You should be able to catch crabs in November down there.  We still get them then up here on the upper Texas coast.

Thanks for the reply Craig.  I have fished there for many years, and have seen crabs at night when gigging for flounder and never paid much attention to them at that time, but they are going to get my undivided attention now.

I do part-time commercial crabbing in corpus Christi area.

There are blue crabs and commercial crabbers there at south texas close to mexico border, especially in the winter. They catch them all year long.
