Crab Limits!

On Monday 11-25 Captain Tom Mattusch of the Huli Cat said, “It was all limits of rockfish and crab on our charters and open load trips over the weekend, and the weather was much nice as the weekend progressed after having to cancel last Friday. We have been able to take 10-crab limits on every trip since the opener, and the commercial pressure has been much less than in past years. I have had to move around and pull a few more pots, but the limits of sport-grade crab continue. In addition to the crab, we are also finding a number of quality ling cod on the reefs south of the harbor although the lings didn’t bite as well over the weekend.” The Huli Cat is the only large party boat out of Half Moon Bay running the combination trips.
Captain Dennis Baxter of the New Captain Pete is crabbing commercially during the current season, and he is selling live crab off of the boat on the weekends.

Further north in Pacifica, the pier is crowded over the weekends, and crab action has been fair at best for a few legal Dungeness. There is hope that the winter storms will push the crab into shallower water and closer to the pier.
