Did you know that the Chesapeake Bay wears the title as “The Largest Estuary of the World”?

Ideal conditions exist for those crawling and yes, swimming Blue Crabs. In fact, Bay professionals tally the number at 600 million for this entire crabbing season. Captain James paused in his bushel organizing and smiled with a truly robust grin and said, “This year’s Bay conditions give our Blues a perfect growing sanctuary. Fat crabs, lump meat, everything our fans like!” The perfect mix of saltwater and fresh, better known as brackish create salty-sweet meat within the crab’s armor. In fact, five rivers run into the Bay and the Virginia tidal water establishing a perfect home for our Beautiful Swimmers. The Susquehanna, Potomac, Rappahannock, York and James churn the waters into a habitat perfect for spawning and crab activities. Captain James warns us that winter and icy temperatures can change the game, but for now, let Fat Crab Season continue! Click here to read more at our blog.
