Harford Crabbing and Tackle is located just several miles south of Conowingo Dam which is convenient for fishermen and crabbers not only in Maryland but PA. and DE. as well.

Catfishing from a boat, kayak, or the shore is red hot below the dam.:fishing2: Catches of 30 or more fish each morning are commonplace. Many of these fish (including flatheads) are in the 15lb range and up. Fishing for these tasty fish is ideal especially under low water generation conditions. Rockfishing in the river has been fair to good depending on water release - better fishing locally has been around the channel cuts on the Susquehanna Flats and below. Many customers are reporting GREAT rockfishing near the Bay Bridge, Kent Island and especially Hacketts chumming and CHUNKING cut bait. Once water flow in the river improves PLUGGING for ROCKFISH should be productive.

Customers are beginning to report CRAB CATCHES from the lower/middle bay creeks and rivers. Bushel catches have been had and it appears the first major shed is about to begin. Let's hope we have a good year as predicted by the DNR. For what it's worth it seems that crabs are in shallower water than deeper right now and (as you know!) a moving tide is important.

Good luck and we hope to see you soon!
