Live Soft Shell Crab Run Coming on Strong This Week

We Love It When You Share Our Content


With expected warmer temperatures in the Albemarle and Pamlico Sounds behind the Outer Banks of North Carolina, peeler runs are in full swing. Peelers have also shown up in the lower Chesapeake Bay, Virginia’s Northern Neck area, and across the Bay around Cape Charles to Crisfield, Maryland. The market begins the week at $5.50 each for jumbos, slightly more for whales, and $3.50 for primes.

The market will likely fall again before the weekend and definitely over this coming weekend for next week’s business. These are great items to feature this week for Mother’s Day and the following two weeks as peeler runs move up the Chesapeake. Full Newsletter
