I met Seon and his mechanic John at flying J at 7 AM this morning for another trip to Bodega Bay for some crabbing. Arrived at Spud Point to find sunny and calm weather. We motored to the first pot, this was Johnís first time crabbing. He jumped in started coiling line as the pot came up

We had limits after 3 pots, pulled the other traps to rebait and did a little cherry picking foe largest crab
Back to the harbor by 1PM, and steamed and cleaned the bounty

Dang. That is awesome. I am going to have to hook up and go crabbing soon. I love crab. Never been crabbing before though. May have to schedule a trip somewhere.
