Hi all!

My wife and I are relocating to the Richmond area from Tacoma, WA and one of our favorite pastimes is soaking our crab pots in Puget Sound on the weekends. Are there a lot of good public piers for crabbing along Chesapeake Bay? Can anyone give me any ideas as to their locations? Thanks!

Lynnhaven Inlet, Ocean View Pier, or James River Bridge pier those areas usually get pretty crowded but, if you make it there early enough you can get a good spot. These are all locations within the Hampton Roads area if your in Richmond there maybe very good crabbing along the middle peninsula, or the northern neck. Those areas are closer to your location and situated on the Chesapeake bay as well. I'm sure those areas have public piers but, I'm not too sure where at. The middle peninsula and nortern neck are also famous for its oyster and blue crabbing harvest.
