Crabbing in Cape Charles

by: michael email


If you’ve never been crabbing come on down to the Eastern Shore of Virginia and give it a try.  It’s so easy to do and the results are truly delicious.  Our area, where the Atlantic Ocean merges with the Chesapeake Bay,  is a prime spot for catching these succulent blue beauties.  People are saying this is a bumper year for Blue Crab in the Chesapeake Bay!  So come on down, grab your bait,  your crab scooper nets,  a pail to hold your catch, being an optimist I’d bring a large pail, and you’re ready to go.  Crab from a boat or for great crabbing without a boat, try either the new fishing pier at Cape Charles or the larger fishing pier at Kiptopeake State Park.  Either way you will end up with some delicious  crab au gratin dinners.
