Went out crabbing for the long weekend, 2/2/2015 with some friends. Kept it simple, just hit up the pier to soak some hoops & traps and chill.
Was waaay crowded, being the long weekend ‘n all. We got there around 9:30am and there was already like 16 people on the small little pier. Amazing how packed the pillar point pier gets during any long weekend! Continue reading Fantasmical Crabdastical→
Finally getting all caught up on these reports! Went crabbing on Saturday by kayak, and was out hopping around the rocks of the north jetty at Pillar Point harbor on Sunday with Calvin & Patrick.
I decided I was done with those giant behemoths of crab traps from danielson (the metal foldable ones). Just so heavy, bulky, difficult to deal with. I’ve seen lots of kayakers running around with Promar collapsible traps (tr 102W, get the newer ones with escape rings). When If first received them I was skeptical as to how well they would work, but after Saturday I’m sold.
Anyhow! Plan from last weekend was to go out and catch a bunch of crab so we could make crab & corn chowder. I failed to wake up early, and crawled out of bed around 7am. Got to half moon bay around 8am, but didn’t launch until 9:15am. Didn’t get all my gear ready before hand, so took awhile setting stuff up on the beach :x.
