Recreational crabbing is open in the northern Puget Sound areas through December 31 this year. We've been out a few times so far and hope to some more over the next few weekends. You have to have a supplemental crab card which you can get for free anywhere fishing licenses are sold.

I've got the licenses, and go each year... just been procrastinating with the weather. After seeing what he goes through... I feel guilty for not getting out.

Sorry it is in two parts.
I was fishing at about 600 ft. These are actually Bardi. T he Opelio and Bardi are so similar they actually cross to form a hybrid. You can tell a hybrid by the eyes. A hybrid will have one green and one red eye.

That's awesome! Thanks for posting that. Do the hybrids breed themselves? Or are they like Mules, a dead end?

Too cool skipper!

I don't think they are mules but I could be wrong. The book didn't say anything about that.
More than likely no one knows.
I havent seen any in my traps.

I don't know what happened there.

I tried to edit the darn thing but no luck.

It was supposed to be only one and no text came up with it.

It was pretty cold out that day.
Some of the crab began loosing there legs.
Froze and snapped right off.
We cooked them up on the way back to the harbor for a light snack.

I have no idea if this will work but it's Just more of me and my crew catching a few crab in Alaska.

I like fresh seafood year round.
