I know it's early, but I want to take the kids crabbing. Are their any good spot in Astoria to go. T Bay is also an option. Also, is anyone fishing for Salmon in astoria? I know Gov't island is the most popular, but we want to fish while crabbing. If not we will go for some gators and release.

Someone went out in the Columbia estuary last weekend and did so well they were able to throw back a few small keppers because the crabbinb was so well.

Hey Fishchaser, that was probably me. We caught 48 crab in less than 2 1/2 hrs and had to toss nearly a dozen because of lack of people on board. No monsters but the crab were full of meat and very sweet.

Kingfisher, go to Astoria with confidence as long as you have good bait. Crab only during the last hour of incoming through the slack. As soon as the tide turns out pick up your gear and split, you'll just waste your time on the outgoing. Dont crab in less than 20 feet either if possible. Good luck.
