Crabbers Mike and Elli from New Jersey score crabbing at Winchester and Coos Bay.
Mike contacted me earlier inquiring where he could purchase several Crab Max crab traps. His next email described his success crabbing at Winchester and Coos bay. That's great!, I responding. Did you crab from A Dock? How many crab were you and Ellie catch? By chance did you take any photos and if you did can you share them with us?
We love to see success; that is what crabbing is all about. Click on the images to enlarge them. Thanks, Bill
Mike passed this on to me. We had a great time with the CrabMax. We bought two and also used two big collapsible box traps. We live in an RV so space is an issue. This is one of the reasons I like the crab max.
We crabbed at the A dock in Winchester Bay and caught 10 keepers in two days. Just so you know, probably seven of them were in the crabmax not the pot. We went further down the coast to Charleston OR for a few days. We caught six the first day and 20 the next!!! Again almost all were in the crabmax including one that was over 7 inches across. It did not matter what bait we used, chicken, fish or even "special sauced chicken". the crabmax out performed the other pots. And it was easier. So light and easy to haul up. When I pull a pot they are heavy and I feel like I am almost going to fall off the dock, but not with the crabmax. My only regret is that we did not get two more. But we will!
