for crabbing you have a bunch of options...anywhere in the sound will produce. Your gonna be in KH so the closest access would be just south of Jockeys Ridge. There are better places if you take rt 12 south toward the inlet...or you can try over on manteo as well..go over the bridge and make a left at the light near pirates cove. If all else fails, head north to the corolla light. My house is about a mile away from there, I always do well there. It might also be the easiest for young ones....theres a bunch of docks there. Hope that helps..
