Crabbing Rodeo - Scheduled June 14, 2014 9am til noon
Each year, the Pea Island Crabbing/Fishing Rodeo is held the second Saturday in June from 9 am until noon.
Participants are encouraged to bring everything they need for the morning, including sunscreen, insect repellant, food, drink, chairs, etc.
Note: Success varies from year-to-year. Some years, almost everyone (sometimes as many as 500 people) takes home a full bucket of crabs. Some years, catch is much smaller. But, it's always a fun time for the entire family.
For more information, contact the Refuge Visitor Center at 252-987-2394.
Note, beginning 2014, the Crabbing Rodeo will not have any sort of prize drawing. We invite families and individuals to come out and enjoy a morning of fun, wildlife-dependent recreation on Pea Island National Wildlife Refuge! Your "prize" will be the fun you have and the fish or crabs you catch!!
