Happy 4th, happy crabbingJuly 4th, 2013 by cstark
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.
