It was raining at John Wayne Marina when we launched today, just the way we like it in the Northwest- keeps the wimps home. We soaked the pots for a few hours, then pulled them. After sorting through well over a hundred females and tiny males, we gleaned 5 keepers out of 10 pots. Not a good opening day. The official reports from the WDFW tell us that crabbing is especially good, so we must be anomalous. Or they are lying. Which is how they roll. We will persevere.
