Dungeness Crab

Crabbing season 2008 just ended. It was a good harvest. These crabs were pulled from Hunter Bay, a quiet backwater bight of Lopez Island. For bait we used a jar of Geoduck Oysters.

It is a lazy man's game, you can toss a perforated can of seafood into the bait box, dangle the crab pot off the side of the sailboat, wake up in the morning and haul up the pot. When it works, its decadent.

It doesn't always work.
