Crabbing Log

This page is a log of all my (plus some relative's) crabbing expeditions in the Lower Mainland, starting in the summer of 2006. The log contains the dates of the trips, the locations, the types of traps used, the deployment methods, and the number of crabs that were caught. Note that this page logs all the crabs that were caught, not all the ones that were kept. Obviously, the number of crabs that were kept is lower than the number of crabs caught. This page doesn't necessarily provide any concrete information, but hopefully it'll give you a rough idea of what to expect when you go crabbing.
