Re: Where is the best spot to crab inthe Back bay of Cape May

There are many places to go crabbing.  The best locations are the creeks and narrower passes between land and islands or between two marshes.  The creek need not be deep to have crabs.  I suggest you do some scouting to find a creek that is accessible.  Look for a place where there is a few feet of water and tidal movement.  You need to drop your crab trap or bait into at least 3 feet of water.  Some people crab the  creeks between Cape May and Wildwood Crest.  Watch out for cars.  Anywhere you can get access to a creek that has a couple of feet of water, there will be crabs.  There are a couple of small bridges that have some access, although traffic can be a problem.  Be careful.

Good Luck.
