Default Crabbing places at DE

I live at philadelphia. Next weekend, we plan to go out for crabbing at DE. Is there any nice place that is close to Philadelphia for crabbing. If we don't use traps and only use some baits like chicken necks, do we need licenses?

Thanks

coming from Phila you may want to look at the Upper Chesapeake in MD.rather than DE. Delaware beaches are minimum 2 1/2 hours from Phila.

I've seen plenty of people crabbing on the bridges near Augustine Beach (Rt 9, south of Port Penn in New Castle County).

Yes, as of January 1, 2008, a license is required to crab in Delaware.

Camrynh is right. Augustine Beach/Delaware City (in New Castle County) is the most northern area I know of in Delaware where you can crab.

In Kent County, the northern point is Woodland Beach.

South of Augustine Beach are two separate inlets off the Delaware River that are easy & safe places to crab. Follow Rt 9 south 2 miles from Port Penn and the other is about 4 miles. As the waters cool the crabs will be moving south; prime crabbing season in this area may have passed.
