I'm heading down to Kiptopeke this upcoming Fri- Mon for some fishing and camping. Just wanted to see if anyone knew of anywhere nearby or on the way (I'll be coming down Rt 13) that sells live blue claws and or live fiddler crabs. Thanks in advance!

I think there's a bait shop  called Hitches in Fruitland just south of Salisbury heading down 13. After that...must be some dealers in Crisfield...isnt that a huge crab picking town?

Call Chris's bait & tackle about 2 miles north of Kiptopeke and see what they have

Is that called Oceans East now? I thought I stopped there last year but I could be mixing them up. I called Oceans East and they won't know for sure until the day of whether or not their getting crabs. I'd prefer to have something locked in ahead of time if possible. Thanks!

They are 2 different shops. Chris's is 5 mins from Kipto. Oceans east is on the other side of the CBBT in VA beach.  Oceans east usually has fiddlers and blueclaws. Chris's sometimes has blueclaws. You can catch blueclaws at the kipto pier

Chris's is no more, it's now Oceans East - Eastern Shore.
