Happy 4th, happy crabbing

Baseball, hot dogs and crab.

Judging by the number of crabbers I’ve seen on Port Orchard Bay today — between Illahee and Bainbridge Island — I’m thinking that’s Kitsap’s theme for July 4 this year.

Crab season in Puget Sound waters opened July 1,took a couple days off, and opened again today (the 4th). Crabbers will be out from Thursday to Monday until the season closes in September.

Check the Washington State Fish & Wildlife site for regs and other information.

Hope  you have a safe and happy fourth

And as someone once said, the best way to be safe on the fourth is to not buy a fifth on the third.
