Getting crabby on the coast

Ever thought about heading to the southern Oregon Coast for a little crabbing? If so, you should.

Last year, we went down to Coos Bay for a weekend of all kinds of fishing, including surfperch, bass via kayaks, and clamming and crabbing. We even caught a red rock crab in no time, something we’d never done before. (All the crustaceans we’d hauled in up till then had been Dungeness.)

A few months later, I got an assignment from Travel Oregon and Oregon’s Adventure Coast for a more in-depth story all about crabbing and clamming on the southern Oregon Coast: how to do it, where to go, what kind of species are around. Find the story on the Travel Oregon site.
