it depends on high the tide is, normally when i go crabbing i will choose the day with the biggest change in tide. eg 0750 0.5.. 1345 2.8..
take a look at 11th september 2013 tide from the NEA tide page, 0826 1.0... 1420 2.8... you can go abt 8.30 and slowly setup your gears, prepare the baits, tie your cages etc.
