Summer Crab

9 incher disco

The 2017 summer Dungeness crabbing season is in full swing now and it’s been a banner one so far. Those pinchered , delectable local crustaceans have been running larger than usual w/ a 7-8″ average in most of the areas we’ve been dropping the pots. A few bruisers even went over 9″ carapace !  Most of these large male crab have been in very hard shell condition, prime for the boiling pot and crab crackers.  The summer season lasts until the first week of September so here’s to hoping the good fishing continues ! We haven’t had our fill yet.
