Dungeness Crab Season Opens Today!
You've got your boat, check. Your crab pots, check. Bait, check. A price set at $1.75 per pound, check. You've got 6 to 8 foot wind waves and 11 to 13 foot northwest swell, what?
Crab pots line the parking lot near the pier in Trinidad this morning as most crab fishermen are not in a big hurry to navigate the blender that the Pacific Ocean has become. Winds were also a problem with 45 mile per hour gusts overnight.
Winds are dying down a bit, and some boats were being readied for the season that opened today at 8:00 am.
