Whether you come down on the side of those who believe the tastiest dish to come out of the Northeast was a product of English settlers’ adaptation of European croquette dishes to their new ingredients, or believe it to be yet another instance of Native Americans providing colonists with new food groups, everyone can agree that there’s just nothing quite like a crab cake.

To catch a crab, all you need to do is drop the line into the water and raise it every few minutes or when you feel a tug on it. Then scoop up any crabs with the net. A baited basket can also be dropped off a boat or pier. Crabbing can't be done easily from the shore because the crab will fall off the line when the line is pulled sideways

Just because your boat is in hibernation mode, doesn’t mean you have to
be, too. Make the most of the off-season while your water-going vessel
settles down for a long winter’s nap. With daytime temperatures
averaging about 63 to 66 degrees Fahrenheit, and nighttime lows hovering
around 45, it’s the perfect time of year to get a dose of nature with
hiking and camping out under a canopy of colorful leaves in the
Chesapeake Bay area
