How late in the season do crabs stick around?

3 posts in this topic

My buddy is stopping by for a night in late Oct on his way home to Ohio. He loves crabbing. We used to go as kids. Thought it would be fun to go, but I never pay attention to crabs really. Are they still around then?

Depends what area you try. Later in the season the crabs go deeper if it gets cool at night. Also look at the salinity level if you crab in brackish waters. Fishless is correct, you can catch, just not in big numbers. If you and your buddy go out and get 2 dozen you would be doing good. I crab Maryland and have done fairly well in mid September until mid October. Good Luck.
