South Sound Crab
« on: May 30, 2021, 04:18:59 PM »
With the efficiency of the WDFW web page I just canít figure out if there will be a crab season in the south sound this year? Anyone hear any grumblings about a crab season?

Area 11 or 13

Iím sure 13 is gone forever. I was thinking this morning it might be time to sell the pots. I never had issues with dungies.

They donít think we are smart enough to tell the difference.

There will not be a crab season down here! The WDFW miss managed this fishery on another level and itíll take years to come back to anything close to what it was!

Where we use to go in area 13 we only got red rocks, and they were huge and usually 12 plus per pot per pull.  Best one was right at 8"

My statement is based on a conversation as well.

I then pointed out that we have several different species of salmon and we seem to do ok identifying thoseÖ.. All I got was a blank look.

Crab has to be the worst regarding regulation following.  Just go to any dock and watch, itís mind blowing they almost never patrol there.

I assume itís similar with boats, plenty of people crab that donít fish or study regulations.

How long does it take for those South Sound Crabs to come back? Is it over fishing?

All you have to do is run from Nisqually to Zittles about 40 days before the typical sport opener and you will see why we donít get a season. Commercial pots strung out every couple hundred feet for miles. Last time I was out there (a couple of years ago) they all followed the 150í line.
