General Discussion / Crabbing Question
« Last post by Quest1 on Today at 09:05:12 AM »
I am wondering if it is unlawful to set another persons crab pots... my wife has a license but I was hoping I could taker her's out with me in the morning and set them, then she could come with me to harvest.

Seems reasonable to me that the license would apply for harvesting, not setting...

How's everyone been doing so far?  Easy limits yesterday evening - 45 minutes for 4 keepers plus 2 lost and 1 released with a seal bite.  Plenty of WA boats up there!  Anyone had a chinook on yet?  I saw one landed last night.

My Dad and I bought a fixer-upper sled last year with this run primarily in mind.  Finally got it running a few weeks ago, and now it is going to pay off!  I'm surprised they are allowing chinook retention, but I wish the sockeye limit was more than 2.  Going to start tying up the 12 foot leaders today . . .

It is funny that the first couple years you could catch them, but that has sure changed in the last few years.  Also, WDFW needs to extend the season or start it later as they don't really show up until July.

I have fished the Skagit for the last 3 years from a boat at various locations and have only caught one fish.  I have only fished it for sockeye when the Fraser is closed.

Although the Fraser is maybe 4 to 8 times larger than the  Skagit at various points and many miles longer, the volume of fish in comparison is staggering.

To put this in perspective,  the Skagit in a great sock year may have 40,000 fish entering the system.  They don't even consider opening the Fraser unless they forecast at least 7,000,000 fish.
