Among other things, Port Townsend has a lot of public piers. There is a second crabbing season on right now, so Sparks brings a pot along and drops it while we do whatever else we came there to do. It’s absolutely beautiful scenery around there–clear views of the Olympics and Mount Baker. Recently whales have been hanging around there, though we didn’t spot any.
Unfortunately, these piers are very much over-crabbed. We always pull up a mess of red rock crabs and female Dungeness. Haven’t gotten a large-enough male Dungeness yet.
