Yes boys and girls it’s time t o go a hunting the elusive wild dungeness crab. I get asked a lot where to go for dungees in this area. Here’s the deal. If you check out this map on Google maps you will see an area in Quartermaster Harbor that I like to crab but people crab all over that area. there are also crab in several other areas like Olalla, Ruston and north of Point Richmond. Use some kind of oily bait like cat food or Tuna. Turkey legs work well but I like to use my Salmon carcasses from the fish I catch. This keeps me from buying bait and allows me to transform more of the salmon into an edible form.
You also want to make sure you only keep legal crab. For Dungeness it is males only and 6.25 inches inside the points. Males have a narrow triangle on their belly. like this:
