Thats the right place pull into harbour point and park between the pillars just dont park in a actual spot or you get towed. you can also post up on the opp side by the icw on the grass

tried again today this am, i could not find a spot to park that wouldnt be considered trespassing

Image

i seen some park and recreation people park in the black spot, is that what you were referring to ? i drove inside harbour point it looked like crab paradise, 2 huge ponds of water in the middle and on the sides

pines point road looked like it would be littered with crabs, but there was a no trespassing sign every 75 yards.

:cry:

Can anyone take a picture of the crabs your using? I usually only see blue land crabs and they are too big to use and probably no good to use as bait anyway.
