When we move down there (Clark County)...I'll have to learn where to go all over again.

There is a lot of Columbia River shoreline in Clark County, but I am afraid it is a long way from the salty part where the crabs hang out. You might as well get your name on the waiting list for a slip in one of the basins down here.

I will testify that the crab was great! Crab salad and crab omelettes make me happy. Thanks Mike!

Looks like we have the same commercial pot too boot me lod! For the most part and to my dismay, I get 9 out of 10 dungies, over what I really want to see - snow crab Smile Star Xmas Tongue

New hot pot! We had more than enough for two limits of 12 in this pot alone! All total for Monday morning we probably tossed back 30 legal crab to keep the heaviest 24.

Nice! So what are your thoughts on Crab Rings? I'm seriously considering buying one, just to have for next time I head out west. I used to have one some time ago, that actually folded up in half. I'm looking at one now that just flattens out it appears. But the top ring is 30". That's still a lot of space needed for storage on a 22. Colby

Just this season I started using what we call a crab ring similar to this:



We are allowed three crab catching devices per person so I carry five pots to toss out for a while then we anchor and fiddle around with the ring gizmo in shallower water. It gets us a few crab and is kind of fun. The only hassle with it is the smaller crab getting all tangled up in the net strings.

I also have a couple of the snare gizmos to use with a fishing pole but don't use them much since getting the ring.

Those folding traps don't hold up too well around here because the river current requires they be weighted down quite a bit to be able to use a float large enough to be seen. The extra weight makes the wire cage start falling apart after a few uses.

Also, Colby, I have to tell you the side curtain setup Lois saw in your boat is a real hit! We stuck a fiberglass bike flag stick in the bottom pocket on each curtain, snapped them on at the top, and attached some velcro strips to hold them in place when rolled up. Thanks for that tip!

The lighting isn't too great and my picture taking skills are lousy, but here is one of them rolled up in place. We put them up while we were waiting for the crab pots to fill. We could probably roll them up neater if we tried.
