Columbia River Dungeness Crabbing
« on: January 01, 2018, 08:33:13 PM »
Finally got a window where the tides, the wind and my work all cooperated to allow for a holiday crabbing trip upon the Sea Bumbler.  Certainly not the most glorious adventure but a mess of sea spiders for the holidays was a nice treat.  The electric pot puller was a favorite addition from the last boat for my kids.

It is very apparent that this boat can handle much more than I am comfortable with at this point.

Nice!!!   

Love to eat them crabbies,
Cause crab is what I love to eat,
Snap those little legs off,
And nibble on that tasty meat.

Was down at Ilwaco for New Years.  Wife and I went up to the North Head lighthouse and looked for whales for a while.  Well, my wife looked for whales.  I used my binoculars to scan all the boats crabbing along the inside of the North Jetty to see how they are doing.  Looked like everyone was having a good day!
