I need help on catching blue crabs . Can somebody tell me where can I catch them. I am in the fort lauderdale area . Have tried twice without any good results . I have a trap that I purchased at bass pro shop. It is the kind that you leave overnight .

Any input will be deeply appreciated . Thanks .

Try the Dania Cutoff canal. There are plenty in there.

In the miami river near 17th ave is LOADED with them all the time, I used to spend my days there catching them for years and at some times u would see 30 to 40 within 4 hours.
