    Wow! That's a great haul there, Dave. Glad to see the dungies in there as well. Are they understood to be rebounding in the bay, or is much known about the numbers at all?

    Homerdave,
    have you had any king crabs in your pot?

    brian - F&G is doing a pot survey for dungies this month. the population seems strong, and in greater numbers than anticipated based on anecdotal reports from tanner harvest. we may see a season here if we are lucky.

    i have not gotten any king crab in my pots, but the area reputed to have a few is not particularly known for tanners, so we don't fish there. 20 years ago we would occasionally see baby king crab when we were tidepooling or clamming, but i don't think i have seen one in over 15 years.

    the tanners are beginning to fill out, of the 10 we kept today only a couple were bright and light...

    Sounds complicated. I wouldn't know what to keep and what to throw back. I might have to read some regulations for once before I go down there again.
    Hike faster. I hear banjo music.
