I'd move and/or try deeper.  Before it got shut down, I'd crab a lot in 160-220 down in 13.  Gotta have the right gear and tides for that but it was where the keeper dungeness were.  I would you should be able to find some at that depth if they are around though.

Was just up there geoducking.
The commercial pots I saw them pulling were very busy.

And that was just off the one beach I was on.

I'd kill for a geoduck. Well, I'd kill the geoduck. Love geoduck ceviche.

First pull limits yesterday and today again in 8-2 (even with a malfunctioned pot this morning).  Good sized crab too.  We're 60 for 60 now.  Can't ever remember that ever happening.  First pic is Thursday, second is today (was in a hurry and forgot to take the cooler pic).

Look man, some times you just gotta roll the dice

My crab count this year is at 48 legal Dungies all in Area 5. I have been making dill/red onion crab cakes with them and also giving quite a few away to friends.

Last week I had my first lost pot ever. I think that it got taken out to sea in the -2 tides. We had a huge exchange and it was one of my deeper sets. The pot was around 30 lbs. with a single buoy, 100ft of rope in 60ft of water.

We've been doing a bit of crabbing in 6 just out of Sequim. Ran some deeper sets last week, but 80 feet outperformed anything else by a long shot.

Limits again today in 8-2 (no pics though), we made 10 just barely.  Lots of softs all of a sudden.  Threw back more legal sized softs than keepers.  On to fishing more than crabbing.
