My first VA post!  My brother bought a place on the water so now I have a nice spot to try crabbing if I don't mind driving a few hours.

Friday 7/12, used 24 traps/rings baited with chicken.  From 6:30-9:30 in 3-5 ft caught 46 keepers.  Most of them were under 6".  Tons of juveniles tore up my bait.  Had about 10 bigger ones over 6" that were whiteys (which I always throw back) ... maybe I can get them in a week or two when they are nice and full.

Saturday 7/13, same time and depth, using 20 traps.  The total catch went down to 22 that day.  Talked with a rec who said the crabbing had heated up in that area in the last week or two.  So there really are SOME crabs in VA!

Next trip in 2 weeks, need to snap some photos next time.  Good luck all.
