Whidbey crabbers pinch themselves as season approaches

  • Jun 29, 2016 at 2:00PM

Hardware stores across the South End are fully stocked with the necessities: round and square pots, bait, buoys, bait boxes and lead line. And they are going fast. Crab season opens July 1 and runs through September 5. Hunting the succulent crustaceans is permitted throughout the season except for every Tuesday and Wednesday, according to the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife. Puget Sound is home to Dungeness and Red Rock crabs, both of which are free to catch and eat.
