Live Dungeness in Haines (wanted)
I am driving from Fairbanks to Haines this weekend for the 2010 brew fest.
I would like to bring home some live Dungeness.
What are the chances of catching anything from a pot thrown into the harbor?
Where can I buy live crabs?
Any Dungeness related information has a good chance of being useful to me as I am almost perfectly ignorant on the subject, but I am also highly motivated as there are few things I like better than fresh Dungeness crab.
Unfortunately you won't find any live dungies around for sale right now. Commercial season opens June 15th. I'm not sure about catching them yourself though. Maybe someone from Haines can chime in.
You can catch a few at the old cannery dock on Mud Bay road if they let you drop a few pots. Not much chance at the others
