Thinking of some crabbing for the family tomorrow... anyone with reports??? netarts and newport seem to have good numbers in the past few weeks. Any expereince recently????
I know its a late so I hope you get this.
Went out of Hammond yesterday. Used old herring, chicken and a salmon carcass, all smeared with crab smelly jelly. 5 traps pulled three times. 36 keepers. Actually pulled about a gazillion crab. Culled the softies and smallies for 3 limits of full, hard shelled, large crab. Crabbed near B22. When we got there the current was running HARD, so dropped pots in 8-10 feet of water close to shore. When the tide got closer to slack, we moved closer to the bouy. Total time on the water was three hours
Have fun. I think no matter where you go this time of year, you'll get crab. I like Netarts, its easy crabbing this time of year. hammond was closer to home for a afternoon session. And - bonus, it was a beautiful day
