Re: Crab Pots in Channels, oh My!
northoceanbeach: The ones that you are seeing around here are commercial pots, not recreational. Recreational crab season starts on July 1st, then there will be far more pots out there.
They aren't too hard to avoid, you don't see many in deep water.
I am always surprised at how many are put in the middle of navigation channels. For instance the south end of Agate Pass is littered with them.
boats that I sail on regularly: Pearson 28-2, Rondar 505, Yankee 30, Blanchard Junior
