    Default How deep for tanners?

    I have noticed that people are catching a few tanners in K-Bay; how deep do folks usually fish? What type of bait? Will my old collapsible pot work? Can I use the buoy pulling procedure in lieu of a pot puller? Thanks for any input.

    seems that you need to look for at least 300'.
    any crab bait should work, halibut carcasses, herring, salmon heads, etc.
    make sure that your pot has all the required escape mechanisms and biodegradable twine.
    the crab are still REALLY light though, hardly any meat for their size.
    the ugly dirty ones are still full. the clean just molted ones won't likely be full until late august or september.
    no reason you can't pull your pot with a bouy.

    Default Thanks Dave!

    Nice to know someone who has it scoped out down there. I'm still confused by the map ADFG put out... is it anywhere inside the line from Anchor Point to Pog. Pt. or what?

    And will the rain ever quit...?

    And will we ever get summer?
