Any suggestion on a good pier where she can try her hand I was planning on solomans

Solomans is great, point lookout too. Best crabbing at point lookout is the lagoon next to the causeway. Use three foot steaks with about 30' of twine and a chicken neck. A wire mesh net makes the operation go much smother. Point lookout right now has the best crabbing. I also like the choptank pier due to how much room you have to operate, lots of space to drop multiple pots/traps and you can fish and crab TOGETHER which makes it more fun/romantic and PORTA-POTS!. Bring your swimming suit so you can take a dip, nice beech to the left of the baybridge side pier, no nettles this time of year. Not to many rocks, just smooth sand and few people.

I like the afore mentioned method of hand lines for crabbing on a date; It's more interactive and she can slowly pull in the line and you can net. A lot of fun to do with your kids too, its a skill that really isn't too hard to master and its something to do besides just pulling up a trap every ten minutes.

Hope this helps!
Thanks for the info! ended up at solomans she caught 3 crab I ended up with 7 croaker and 2 perch
Very nice! Keep the other spots I mentioned in your fish file for next time.
