Blue Crab is very common to all North Carolina coastal water but the largest population is in the Albermarle and Pamilico Sounds.

North Carolina is the perennial top producer of blue crabs in the US-Even more than Maryland, Virginia and the entire Chesapeake Bay area combined.
I have been on loading docks of Crab houses along coastal NC while trucks from Maryland were loading up and heading North.
Blue crabs can be found in all of North Carolina inside waters. The brackish the waters the tastier the crab-That's why places like the Albemarle Sound, Cape Fear River and any creek or stream are popular.
ALL NC waters are very productive for blue crabs.
Catching crabs is very easy-But there are a few rules and regulations in regards to size and gear.
In my opinion-The best way to catch them is with a crab pot. You are allowed to use one crab pot from a dock or pier. But if you are "potting" from a vessel-Then you will need a Recreational Commercial Gear License (RCGL). The cost is only $35 a year and allows you to fish up to 5 crab pots from a boat.
The license also allows you to fish certain other commercial type gear.

There are a few rules and regulations in regards to catching crab. For me-The two most important rules
