Dungeness Crab Motherload.


Yes, the crabbing season is closed in most of the Puget Sound, but Area 7 is still open. And yes, there are crab to be caught.


Do you know the secret to catching them, even late in the season? Is it the bait? The trap? The boat? Yes, it all plays a part, but the biggest factor is crab when the crab can find you. Strong currents make it hard for crab to move so if you are crabbing during a huge tidal swing, chances are you will have little to know catch.


A slack tide is your friend and will bring in abundant catches. So...be a slacker.
