The How to's of Chesapeake Bay Crabbing

Posted by Schaefer's Canal House on 12/31/2014 to Restaurant
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

Pros and Cons of Living on Water

Posted by Schaefer's Canal House on 12/23/2014 to Marina
The idea of living on a floating home, or a houseboat, has a romantic notion to it. It seems like you can lift your anchor, move to any other place on Earth at any time, and take your whole home with you. In reality, things are never that easy. If you live on a floating home this water bohemianism is not even possible. Still, like any other living arrangement, living on water has its advantages, and it does come with a drawback, or a few, of its own.

Planning a Striper Fishing Trip in Chesapeake Bay

Posted by Schaefer's Canal House on 12/10/2014 to Marina
Although the current wintery climes won’t allow for a fishing trip, it is not too difficult to envision the perfect striping fishing trip when the Spring arrives.   As a matter a fact, starting to plan now might make the short or mini-vacation on the water absolutely perfect when the time arrives and will remain quite memorable for years to come.  Spring is the best time to fish for Striper, especially when they migrate.
