    Crab season started very slow this time, went to are tried and true spot and only caught 4 Dungies in 5 pots and most other people did the same slow all over. There has been a large swell running 8-10 ft. so hopefully it will get better when it simmers down. Left the pots out and baited heavy we will see this weekend if it gets better. There are rumors of blue fin in and around the bay close so maybe we will look.

    Keep me posted. I would like to make a run up there for some Dungeness. Are you using a hoop net or a crab trap?
