If you look at the bottom right, there IS a season for blue crabs....This was 2013, but I see that the closed season is when I doubt any sane person would be out anyway....

You are correct but those dates only apply to crabbing activities that require a license such as dropping commercial style crab pots or using Trot lines. Recreational crabbing with hand lines, dip nets and collapsible crab traps does not require a license and does not have a closed season.

my friend has always caught nice crabs in April after the first good warm up...he crabs on or very close to the mud flats since they will warm up faster than the channels. give it a try...I am sure you'll find a few!
