My family is heading to Chincoteague in mid August for a vacation. We are staying at Toms' Cove and taking a small (16') aluminum V-hull with 25hp motor. We are hoping to try our luck at some crabbing with 300' snood line and some topless traps. We have never crabbed there before so was hoping to maybe get some pointers on locations to crab that may be close to the boat ramp at Tom's Cove. Any advice is appreciated.

Crabs will be just about everywhere this time of year.  Mostly Sooks with a few small Jimmies.

If your going to use a snood/trot line in VA, you need a lic (aprox $15).

Thanks for the info. I have a MD recreational license and registered with VA fisheries. Do I still need a VA license?

Yes you need a trotline license.  Its 10 bucks.  You can have more then one license but can't hook the lines together. You can use as many collapsible traps as you want.  No license requirement for them.
