Crabbing 101


Crabbing from the shore is an activity that the whole family can enjoy. Lydia Nguyen goes to Netarts Bay on the Oregon coast and learns how to catch crab with author of “Oregon’s Crabs”, Bill Lackner.

From taking Dungeness and red rock crabs on the Oregon Coast, to the cyclical movement of crabs from our bays, Bill’s book “Oregon’s Crabs”, covers everything you need to know about crabbing in Oregon. It also describes and identifies the most productive baits and the most innovative and productive methods used to trap crabs.
