How To Catch BIG Blueclaw Crab the old fashion way! Come join me in the wee hours of the night as I go crabbing and round up a dozen BIG Blue claw crabs in the back bay. Enjoy the crickets in the background and the bugs around me as I peck at a heard of blue crab with a net. Leave the crab trap at home! I show you how to catch big blue claw crabs and where to find crab so you can go crabbing the fun way! Blueclaw crabs have to be 4.5" in width to keep and you can keep up to 50 a day in NYS. I culled my catch and only kept 12 of the bigger male crabs all 5" and bigger! You can use bulky crab traps with crab bait but this is a fun way to catch them. You cant beat getting wet and dirty in the warm water on a hot buggy summer night. Thanks for watching and hope you enjoy the video as much as we did making it!
