Crabbing in Rockport, Texas

Posted by on Thursday, June 4th, 2015 at 3:56pm.

This is a pregnant female crab... do NOT keep these! If you are crabbing recreationally please remember to throw these back!! There are a few thousand babies in her sponge... Future population! A female can only mate once and then becomes "matured" and won't mate again. Once she is matured, then harvesting is allowed.
