Potting white crabs at Captree

Rate this topic

9 posts in this topic

I've heard that the captree piers can be pretty good for potting white crabs.  Has anyone here had success doing it?  I'm wondering if the piers closer to the boat basin or the ones to the south would be more productive?  Tides make a difference?

If you were talking lobster, I might agree with you.  I marked a huge decrease in my area (permanently uncertified) after Agnes, and also Sandy, but it bounced back.  It seemed like there was a lot less spraying on the South Shore west end this year, or I missed the notifications.  I did note the asian tigers have spread and can add yet another pest bug for the back bays.  But no shortage of clams, going by what the gulls have been dropping on us at a movable bridge in Nassau.   The few friends that still rake do ok east of the Wantagh, but I've heard bad news farther east and on the north shore.
