Oregon Crabbing

Dungeness Crab


When the tides and conditions are right your guide may offer to take you crabbing while you are fishing for salmon.   If this is the case make sure you take him up on the offer.

The Pacific Ocean off Oregon is one of the best places to catch Dungenous Crab.   These crab are considered a delicascy and many consider it the best crab they have ever eaten.

We catch these crabs in crab traps or crab pots and the process is simple.   Put some bait in the crab pot,  send it over the railing of the boat with a Buoy tied to it and let it soak.  Come back in a few hours and in the pot will be a number crab you will then sort through to look for the “keepers”.
