Pictures of Crabbing Days on the Pier in San Francisco

Tuesday, February 28, 2012

I thought I’d share some various pictures taken during our recent weekend crabbing outings. There is always so much going on that there’s never a dull moment while sitting out on the pier. We do tend to catch a variety of critters in our crab cages and only the right size crabs can be kept and everybody else goes back into the bay. So usually we only get 1 or 2 out of a full cage and we leave them in for about an hour each time. The main thing is we’re having fun and getting something for dinner while we’re there.

    Gosh, some of my fondest memories were going crabbing off our boat up in the Pacific Northwest. We usually got many "keepers" each time we went where we went. Sounds like a perfect day to me!
