I set out this morning with my friend Mike to the pier in Pacifica, CA for a little crabbing.

We used some crab snares, which are little boxes that hold bait and 6 snares that catch the crabs when you pull in.

You can attach the snares to the end of an ocean pole and cast them out pretty far from the pier.

We also used the more basic crab nets. We didn't have any luck today because the sealions were all over our bait. I pulled my net up a number of times and it was full of a sealion.

We bought some mesh nets that keep the beasts off the bait, but by that point it was too late.

Right on the other side of these rocks is where the Mavericks big surf tournament happens.
When I first went out to crab at this pier there were huge waves and surfers running down the pier and jumping off into the Ocean rather than paddling out.

Enjoy the pictures.
I'm not gonna lie, they're good. I got really lucky with some of these. I thought these pictures turned out best.

Here are all the pictures in slideshow form, it works best if you expand it to fullsize.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
