Hi my name is Trina and I have been crabbing for several years. I love the sport and I have studied many techniques and styles. I also know some science behind the species. It’s a Fun Summer past time down the shore. I can show you how to have fun doing it too. You are welcome to come along for a fantastic and fun nature experience. I can show you how to bait traps, throw traps, and catch crabs. It’s a great summer activity to do alone or with family and friends. You will have lots of fun and enjoy time with nature as well.
