    Welcome to my fishing blog!

    A new study just completed by the Northwest Straits Foundation found that some crab pots are better than others in allowing crabs to escape if the pots are lost. The ubiquitous Danielson square pot does a good job, but the pots with top opening escape panels that require crabs to push their way out don’t work well. Making those top opening escape hatches spring loaded by attached a bungee cord helps make them more effective. Read the study fact sheet or full report at

    If there were EVER a reason the commies should stop using gill or seine nets this is it!
    I have been advocating for no nets in Puget Sound for years without any support from anybody.
    Just 1more point in my plan to bring back our fisheries from the fire strait the are in.
