Columbia River Crabbing
I put 18 crab pots in two strings on the lower desdemona sands yesterday. We baited with tuna heads and shad, no bait cans this time. With everything wrong in the river, lots of run off, muddy water, times to harvest are wrong, before daylite or after dark But we needed Christmas Crab so I fire up the Lady Dee at 7am this morning (Saturday). We had to run the first few pots in the dark, thanks to Nobeltec I could find them in the dark. We had the gear on board by 9am with 12 limits of 12 crab for everybody on board. We cooked them in 2 cooks and everyone is on the road before 11am. We harvested everything we need for the holidays. You have a few days to fish before the commercials go in. Be safe out there and use common sense on the water, it can be nasty out there.
Thanks Capt. E.R. (Gene) Kane Happy Holidays
