Think Buoy 10 is a madhouse? Was in Waldport Sunday for Salty Dog's famous fries and if the demolition derby that was going on then is any indication of this coming weekend, you will be lucky to find enough free water to drop a pencil in. North Rivers banging drift boats, broken engines at the docks, ancient monster glass hulls running from Mckinney's to under the bridge. Stacked like cordwood in front of the jaws and trailers going half way back up the street to Ray's Market.
....But the crabs were legal, heavy, male and hard and seemed to be that everyone was happy.
