Visited my dad who lives on the island.  I just finished making about 6 crab rings (a big thank you to my mentor Bob Giberson), so brought 4 of them with me to try out. We only had about 2 hours to crab off a private dock on a creek off the Hampton River. Started around 4 pm (2 hours prior to high tide) and finished at 5:30. Caught several but only kept 12 jimmies averaging 6 inches since I was the only one eating them. I could have easily pulled in a half bushel if I stayed another hour. Each ring had 1-2 crabs each pull. The tides in St. Simons are pretty strong and these rings performed quite admirably (each weighted with 2 oz egg sinker). Used chicken wings as bait. I'll try to post a pic later.

Neat to read a crabbing report from Georgia.

I agree, i am glad to see a post from Georgia. I live in Sc. And never see any posts from other South Carolina crabbers. I know I cant be the only one here that loves crabbing!

Here's a pic of the bounty cooked the lowcountry way. Not bad for an hour's work - a nice change from the crummy season we're having in VA.

Maybe time to relocate? What's the market like for blue crabs in Georgia?

I'm not sure what the market is like, but between good crabbing and great fishing for tailing redfish, a relocation just might be in order.
