About Crabbing


Let’s go Crabbing!

Our morning crabbing trip will be done with commercial style "Trotline" for the Maryland Blue Crab.

Come and enjoy a morning on the Chesapeake catching your own Maryland Blue Crab.

We start crabbing at 7am or earlier. No afternoon crabbing.

Legal start time is 1/2hour before sunrise to 5pm

All Equipment, baited line and crabbing license will be provided.

We will  layout a traditional Chesapeake Trot Line and  help dip your own crabs.


Family fun

Everyone gets involved with catching, from dipping the crabs off the trot line, culling or measuring the crabs. 

 You can keep your daily catch limit and take home your catch of the day for a Maryland crab feast.
