Crabber Biography:

Ben Bard is a longtime land crabber who expanded his horizons after finding the Bluecrab Archives website a few years ago. Armed with the tricks he learned on the BCA site and a desire to excel, Ben and his family barely made it off the ramp due to mechanical problems at the 2015 Assault.

A late season trip aboard Bushelled Out helped Ben learn about the tournament waters and saw his son, Ben III, pull a 7.25″ crab in during the trip. He is hoping that his son’s magic will lead to a future Assault on Patcong Creek Tournament Championship.
