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.
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.
