It costs me right around $100.00 to crab. Truck fuel, boat fuel, launch fee and bait. Where it really costs me is baiting the line, getting up at 0330, driving an hour each way, cleaning the boat and crab pot and debaiting the line. All that said and the cost of crabs, THAT IS ONE HELL OF A DEAL and a relaxing day!! I am going to my Neice's for a crab feast or they would be mine!....... GaryIt costs me a lot more than $100.00 before I wet the line!
This offering is a bargain.
Most of my crabbing cost is my truck fuel towing an hour each way and the $20.00 ramp fee. You live on the water and don't incur either of these costs. Rub it in!! lol........ GaryI must have it made no where near that $$$for me....
it actually cost me less than $10.00 yesterday
Hey Dale. Did you get your oysters from Jill?Went to southern Md Saturday to visit Grandkids and drop off gifts. Told the wife we would go down to Brooms Island and bring home 50 ct oysters.
Passed by Mels Crabs he was advertising Mixed Males $119 a Bu.
Just for comparison!
Without going into a lot of detail....polecat, why are you traveling 196 miles to trotline? I think that's extremely excessive.
I think just saying I'm Polish would have sufficed!.......... GaryWithout going into a lot of detail....
My family, friends and I prefer Pax River crabs to crabs from other tributaries in MD.
I could, if I wanted to, crab in any river I desired.
For me, the issue is not buying or selling.
Occasionally I sell a bushel or more to recover my expenses, however, I give away more than I sell and feel good about it.
I sometimes crab closer to home when time is a factor, but the Pax is my first choice when it comes to crabbing.
P.S. I also drive to Colorado to hunt.
