My day began at zero dark thirty driving down the DE coastline to try a couple spots I saw on Google Maps I thought would be good for crabbing. First stop, "Private Property" signs everywhere. Second stop looked like a good bridge...but no good place to park. Third stop was Holts Landing State Park at the Indian River Bay. Never been there before and it looked nice. Big pier, bathroom, and nice view of the bay, but no crabs. They weren't biting and when they did it was all juvenile males and females. Fourth stop was in Milton. Right by an outfall and the bottom was all muck. Fifth and final stop was at Prime Hook. BINGO. Caught two dozen keepers in a few hours (at low tide no less!). It was a journey for sure, but it was nice to get rewarded!

Anytime anyone can catch two dozen keeper crabs at low tide is outstanding. I'm lucky if I can catch a crab at low tide.

Thanks for sharing your report and photos.

Thanks guys! I think they got caught in the estuary and were all just kinda stuck there. I plan on heading back there this Friday to see how I fare at high tide.

I went on an expedition down near Cedar Swamp and Augustine today with little to show for it. Grats on your haul today! I might have to try further south I think...

LOL. I heard of people preparing their crabs by cleaning them first, so I decided to give it a try. I think they came out really good. Tasted delicious.  laugh
