Heading off to Half Moon Bay for the recreational crab opener in a short
time. Big party as well as able to start fishing for Dungeness crab at
midnight tonight. Some go out and drop pots then. I wait till morning.
Probably a 3 hour pot soak will fill the 10 crab per person limit.


Hope you had good luck!

Bad luck. Came home with donated crabs. We have had a problem the last
few years with pot poachers. Dropped 4 pots came back in a couple hours to
no pots. About a $500 loss. They may show up as the poachers will take
the crabs and then the pots get dropped a ways distant.

But probably the nicest weather and ocean conditions in 10 years. Pretty
calm, maybe 2’ swells and little breeze.

Ah the old days on the lower Chesapeake when you could shoot poachers
and use them for crab bait.

I doubt that is OK now.

I suppose you need to carry a shotgun and anchor over the crab pots any more.

They have put new rules in place about pulling another’s pots. Makes it a
penalty via law. Before, since sport crabs can not be sold, they were
considered valueless, so there was no theft. Commercial crab pots get you
jail or big fine. Doubt the shotgun, but maybe 8oz sinkers flying through
the air.

There seems to be an echo in here ;-)

Sinkers can work wonders!

Several times recently your posts have 'doubled' themselves. Don't know why, and it doesn't happen
to all of them.
