For FishingMagician.com, I'm Eric Granstrom. I mentioned earlier that I got a chance to take my Dad out crabbing and fishing in Puget Sound near Anacortes. In fact, we launched both days under the Twin Bridges in the Swinnomish Channel and ran out just beyond the refinery docks to dump out pots. We were using our tried and true salmon entrails as bait, which worked perfectly in the two hours shouldering high tide. We'd noticed a change in the amount of crab in each pot diminishing, but the crab inside were much larger. We were lucky enough to find limits of nice Dungeness and a few Red Rock crab each day. Now, as of Labor Day weekend's conclusion, most areas in Puget Sound closed for crabbing. The only to remain open are marine areas 7-North where we were and 7-South near the San Juans. All summer crabbers have until October first to submit your catch report cards and those continuing to fish in 7-North and South need to report crab through the rest of September on winter catch record cards. For my money, there's nothing better than freshly boiled Dungeness crab plucked from Puget Sound. Until next time, Good Fishing!
