The fishery is scheduled to reopen on November 3, 2018. A few things you need to know if you’re going to get crabby on your own:

If crabbing from a public pier, you don’t need a sport fishing license to set a trap or net (read all about it in the state’s Ocean Sport Fishing Regulations).You can keep up to 10 Dungeness crabs per day during the season, but they must measure a minimum of 5-3/4 inches across the shell.The best time to catch is early in the morning or an hour or so before sunset.

A popular on-shore crabbing spot: the breakwater jetty off Doran Beach Regional Park. Another good place to try: the Marina Jetty at Bodega Bay’s Spud Point Marina (on the marina’s south end).
