Maryland Blue Crabbing Vacation

The months of August and September are both great crabbing months and coincide with a popular vacation time of the year. One such place to catch a few blue claws and enjoy some of the best weather of the year is out on Point Lookout MD.
The state park (Point Lookout state park) offers a boat launch, fishing pier, camping and beaches all surrounded in a rich Civil War history.
