I am thinking about heading to Newport this next Tuesday and take the wife crabbing. I am hearing the crabbing has picked up down there and thought we would give it a try. I have crabbed Tillamook Bay quite a bit and further north, but never at Newport. I was told to cross the bridge, put my boat in and turn right and crab around the corner. Anyone have any more specific details or any landmarks I should crab near? Any hazards in the area we should watch for? Any help would greatly be appreciated. Also, how do the tides play into the crabbing in Newport, I heard there is going to possibly be some minus tides next week. I have always been told to not crab when there is a large variance in tide changes. Any suggestions there would also be greatly appreciated.
