    I have fished Crab many times over the years. What can I help you with? There is another BOC member on here named Peck that also fishes crab. You might want to send him a p/m. I'v not seen him on board lately.:lol::big_smile:

    Use cut shad or live. Stinkbait if you can't catch bait fish. Fish the points and natural rock bank areas both east and west of Wolf Creek Road. This is a good starting place.:lol::big_smile:
