Being new to the forum i hope i have this in the right place. AndyS hooked me up with some good flounder advice and now i am begging for help with my other passion, blue crabs! Not many seem to be too enthused about them down this way except for us transplants from the Chesapeake Bay area so one would think they should be plentiful and easy to catch. Not so i have found. I tried a few years ago and failed miserably. I am getting back in the saddle and going after them again. I will be using the standard 2X2 half size traps with fish for bait. I have watched a few YouTube videos and they seemed to have better luck with fresh fish than chicken so i will try that. If anyone can point me in the right direction to a good crab catching spot in the lee county area i would appreciate it. The last time i tried a few years ago someone moved my traps. I put mine a few hundred yards from a string of commercial floats and apparently they didn't like the competition. Mine ended up in a nice straight line in about two feet of water. I never keep juvies or females, egg bearing or not and only want enough to enjoy for dinner. Any advice on hot spots would be much appreciated.
