Teaching the kids can be one of the most enjoyable activities out on the bay.  Watching their faces flash with excitement as they pull up a crab trap is a truly memorable experience.  And if you happen to spot a coconut crab – make sure you get a great picture!

After the catch, be sure to steam up your blue crabs and eat them with spaghetti.  There are few things better than making absolute mess while pulling apart crab claws and legs after a great day crabbing.

Whether you are in the Chesapeake Bay in Maryland, the Jersey shore, or nabbing Dungeness crab off the coast of Washington, make sure you are fully stocked on crabbing supplies.

I built this page in honor of my grandfather – hopefully you find something here that puts a smile on your face, or gets the job done.
