Default Winchester Bay Crabbing Report

Hey All,

I was curious if anyone had been to Winchester Bay to crab? I was looking to go next week and wanted to know if it was too early or if someone has had success?

Thanks

The few times we've dropped pots, it was not good. The last time was two weeks ago, we got 2 keepers! We may not know the hot spot, though.... We've used primarily chicken.

Did you drop pots on the mainland side of the bay or the ocean side? Last time that we went we had heard that the ocean side of the bay was the place to crab, after we had crabbed on the mainland side for 3 hours and got 1 keeper!

We were directly across from the entrance to the East marina, just down from the daymark there. There were quite a few pots upriver of there. I don't bother with halfmoon bay, too many lines to avoid for my boat.
