Thanks for the feedback Meg ~ crabbing is slowly improving in the bay after a late start because of a very wet winter! Glad you had fun and somehow crabs caught with your own two hands seem to taste better than ones you bought! Hope...More

I think it was around 7am too. If you want to rent a boat to go crabbing, you can only do that until like 4:00pm
