Crabbing

Postby KAhunter » Mon Jun 17, 2013 11:00 am

I am gonna cyberscout and try to get some info on crabbing lake mattamuskeet. Going to our place in Tyrell county next weekend with the gf for an engagement party in edenton. She loves crabs so i wanted to take her down to the lake and show her around and do a little crabbing. Can someone point me in the right direction as to a good place to go? I have heard the culverts on the causeway can be good but i know they can get busy so i want to maybe try some other spots that may be less crowded. Thanks.

PM if you dont want to give away any good spots.

Went just this past weekend. Culvert pipes along 94, lake landing canal, area around the old lodge inside the refuge, and any other canals along the lake. Be sure to have your license and follow the rules according to crabbing at the lake because I have been checked by the gw just about every time I have gone. We did find one little honey hole that no one else was using off the beaten path that had some crabs in it so big you would call bs if I gave you the size. Go looking for some bears also because they are out and about. We saw 6 fri evening and 4 sat am.

Downtown Greenville on a Friday night. Lot of crabs to choose from...


However if you're looking for big crabs, I have to second EBD. Mattamuskeet has some bruisers.

Just making a point. I don't consider myself old, but you younger generation dudes lack any appreciation or manners. A simple thanks goes a long way in my book. This is one of the reasons why I don't post much up on here. I guess it is an entitlement thing......
Glad I was able to help you out a little bit and be honest--- you had no intentions of posting back to this thread to thank myself or others. The only follow up post would be a bragging "look at what I caught" post

I do appreciate the help and I am looking forward to going. Hoping to find a little sweet spot on my own. I dont really ask much on here (and i try to say thanks if i do) nor do i post bragging pics too often nor am i am young guy (28 is still youngish i guess) or without manners or appreciation. I am not sure how you lumped me in with all of that but think what you want.
