Annapolis is my old stomping grounds. I now live about 30 miles south of Wash. D.C.. If you wanted to live on a boat, then Annapolis is the place to be. You wouldn't believe how many live aboards there are in the Annapolis area. I work for the Navy and would love to get a job working at the Naval Academy just so I can be back in Annapolis. I tried the mid-west thing for a few years, but it wasn't for me. I need to be near the ocean. Next time you come this way, try to visit Chincoteague, Va.

Oh wow!!!! I can totally see crabbing for a living. I have to tell you that being on the East Coast was a whole new experience. The boating lifestyle so much different than here. I enjoyed every minute of the crabbing, fishing and just living on a boat for a week!! What a great time!!! We took the boat from Annapolis up the bay then back down. Caught the best crabs in St. Michaels, MD. Can't wait to go back!

I don't go out nearly enough to be considered serious about it. I'm lucky if I do it 4 or 5 times in a season. i have no problem eating them, though! One of my co-workers just goes out on the weekend and this year he is selling a bushel for $200. He sometimes makes over $1200-$1500 in just a few days with his little boat.

one of the crabs dropping was one of my worries. Because let me tell you those suckers are VERY big and looked really angry haha!!!! I already said I wanted to quit my job and become a crabber. But unfortunately, I was there on vacation and there is no business for crabbing where I live in MN :( The thought of moving crossed my mind haha!!! How often do you go?

Watch out now, you might get hooked. Next thing you know you'll buy a small used boat and be going out on the weekends at 5 am. I know a few guys that quit their jobs this time of year because a person can make an INSANE amount of money crabbing. I've always wondered what happens when you're crabbing in a kayak and you drop a crab in your lap by mistake. Do you man up and take the pinch or is it better to freak out go for a swim?

OMG the crabbing was so fun!!! Never in my life did I imagine I would do that!! But I watched some videos, and had it down ( I thought). went out there, bated my own cages, dropped them and pulled them. Caught ton of really BIG crabs. I brought them back to the boat, cleaned them and made a really good dip out of them!!! Im excited to go back and do some more!!

Yes, it is. How'd the crabbing go for you?

Using this method of crabbing I'm sure smoking a big fattie is almost as important as having bait.

I'm a crab "junkie," apparently. I could watch you catch crab, for an hour! I agree that the clarity of your video is fantastic.

Crabs don't seem to be jumping off at all...seems like for me sometimes they don't want to stay on and other times they don't want to come off. Do you just tie the line to the bait? Looks like you also have a sinker on there
