With July 1st is just around the corner, most Marine Areas in the Puget Sound will officially open to recreational crabbing!
To find the official start dates/times and regulations for WA State, go to WA Dept. of Fish & Wildlife
The biggest and best change to the regulations this year is the days that are allowed for crabbing. Previously, you could only drop your pots off on Wednesday through Saturday. This put a huge crimp in your weekend crabbing style. Now, the new regulations permit crabbing Thursday through Monday! Catch quantity limits are still remain five (5) male Dungeness and six (6) Rock crab (either sex) per day.
