I took advantage of being in Seattle at the Boat Show doing seminars to get out on the water on Puget Sound. My good friend Fred Lillian, who has been on all but one of our fishing adventures to Belize and Mexico, offered to take me crabbing. Last Sunday morning I met him at his home near the Tulalip Indian Reservation and we ran across to Camano Head to retrieve the pots he had placed there the day before. He had got his limit on that day, rebaited and was excited about sending me home with a bunch of fresh Dungeness crab. The crossing wasn’t easy. The wind was blowing a good 20 mph or better and the waves made it slow going. Fred did a great job dodging logs and plowing through the ugly conditions and we were able to spot his floats in the heavy chop. The first pot produced no keepers, and the second only two keeper-sized crab and one rock crab. We fought our way back to the dock where Fred had everything ready to clean and cook our catch. We added our take to the limit he took the day before and sent me home with four nice crab, which my wife and I enjoyed on Monday evening for dinner. Thanks Fred!
It was tough going to retrieve our pots, but Fred Lillian sent me home with enough crab for my wife and I to enjoy.
