First time out crabbing in my new boat. We headed out to bellingham bay and got the pots set just before noon and by 4pm we were off the water with our 3 limits and we even had to throw some keepers back. We fished with 3 pots, i had no depth finder because i forgot an important cable, but i think we were in 50-60 FOW. It was a calm beautiful day and we had a great time.
I went out on a friends sailboat out of cap sante (Anacortes) on Saturday and people were carrying overflowing buckets of crab up the docks there, so I'd say most people are off to a killer start in MA7 South.
