Puget Sound crabbing season opened July 1st. 
San Juan Island areas open for crab on July 15th.

Mike Schoppert, President of American Tug with a full trap!

Crabbing season opened for much of Puget Sound on July 1st.  The San Juan Island areas will open on July 15th.  For 2011 crabbing is allowed Thursday through Mondays with a daily limit of 5-each male Dungeness.

It is time to get out out there and soak your pots!  The weekend weather was beautiful and summer is here.  Mike & I headed down to a favorite spot near Strawberry Point on Saturday and the crabbing was excellent. 

Let me know your favorite recipe.
