Ting and yang about crabbing. Depends on what you want and your purpose for catching crabs.  Finally the Virginia crabbers have a season to talk about, but the prices dropped because of the availability of the crabs. Happens in that business. Less crabs, more money, too many, prices go lower.  Will the waterman ever be happy, lol.

Glad I catch to eat all the time. Thanks for posting the article. To each their own with interpretations of it. Thanks to the DNR for keeping it real, hope them little crabs get bigger at the end of the season. I need some for winter crab soup, lol.

Water is getting better, caught crabs today, lol. All is not lost, just got to find where they are at depth wise.


 So no crabs north of bridge according to most reports. Go south, the reports are better from down there. Now if you are a comm, definitely stay south, got to fill those orders.

It is not poor any more. Just donít expect bushels on a trip. Crabs are fat and decent size now.

The only fact I can add is that I was into paper shells this past week on a day that I didn't want to go as far south.
