A gentleman visiting from Reno has landed 12 dungeness from the pier in the last three days. Don't worry, I realize now that I have the crab funk on me and so I will not try dropping any of my gear off the pier and mess it up for everyone else. I did get a limit of clams yesterday. There were quite a few near where I parked the boat. They were easier to find than dig. Say, does anyone know if smoked clams are as tasty as smoked salmon? This might be the year to find out.

A few dungeness crabs from the bay today is all I heard about. Nice weather this morning but windy this afternoon. If you want to see some nice views of Lawson's Landing, check out this video.

There are still a few dungeness being caught on the pier and in the bay. Some surfperch being caught on the north half of the beach, no limits but usually dinner if you're not feeding too many. I went clamming this week and saw more clams than I've seen in a long time. I only brought home seven but I dug the largest horseneck (gaper) I've ever dug. Unfortunately, digging that clam pretty well broke me. I still feel like I got beat up three days later.

One more limit of dungeness crab removed from the bay on Thursday. It took 24 hours to do it, but the Lodi boys that got them should still be proud of themselves. Another gentleman, out for the day only, caught 2 dungeness off of the pier on the outgoing tide. Apparently, as long as I'm not trying for them the crabs are biting.

While it has not been a red hot crab bite all season, Wally Frei, a resident here, has landed 12 dungeness in the last eight days. The man has caught four times as many legal crabs in a week than I caught all season and he didn't burn a drop of gas doing it. Maybe I'll let Wally start writing this page.
