Hey Folks:  Iím just off the ICW near Holden Beach.  I retired here this past winter.  Can anyone advise what are the best months for crabbing in this area?  Seems pretty slow right now and lots of small ones. Joe

I do a lot of crabbing at a relatives house in Ocean isle.  Any summer months are fair.  Generally Crabbing is not great there, you have to work for a lot of keepers.   I think it's because there are not a lot of back bays.  just the ICW.    I try to setup using crab traps around the mouth of shallote river, or in spots of the ICW where it is a little wider and you won't have too much boat traffic zooming around.    I also like the ICW where Jinks creek has flow in and out...

Thanks Brian!  If youíre at Shallotte River you may want to try further upstream (if you have a boat) where itís more brackish water.  If you try that, let me know how you make out.  Joe
