Hit Tomales bright and early this morning with my buddy james. We worked our 3 pots for about 5 hours until we limited on the dungies. There were a few good sized reds in the mix but I was most surprised to see better than average sized dungeness for tomales. We had 4 break the 7inch mark and quite a few in the 6.5 . so I was ecstatic to see the quality today. Heres a couple pics

Last year I went out by Hog Island with a friend for crabs. On the first haul we got two keeper Dungies and two that were too small. Unfortunately we managed to lose three crab traps that day even though we were the only ones there. We must have spent at least an hour looking for the traps. We couldn't think of a good lie to explain that, so we quietly slinked home after giving the crabs to a friend.

This year I decided to switch to crab snares, i.e., the little bait boxes with 8 or so snares attached so that they probably wouldn't get lost and, if they did, the would be less expensive to replace. Do these things work?

You can snare crab out there. You need a good sized float and plenty of rope when using traps/pots with the amount of current that place has.
Sorry to hear you lost your gear
