We went crab fishing in Seattle. The crab were hopping and we caught our catch in only about 1/2 an hour. These are red rock crab. We caught them with chicken legs. If you were going a lot, you'd probably use some cheaper bait like free fish heads from the fish market. They did love that chicken, though!

Watching Grandpa pull in the catch

I see some in there!

With Grandma

With Mom, yes, it was cold! (before the two of us chickened out and waited in the car)

Showing off some of the catch.


LT declared them better than the Alaskan king crab legs we had had just a day or two before.

Wow! Those are big...I am not sure I would want to pet them either, but I am sure they were delicious!
What a catch! The family is looking good, even in the cold.

that does look cold! and i have to admit, i agree with jenn - not such a crab fan, but maybe i need to eat more to determine that for sure!
glad to see you all had fun!
happy new year!
