By Eric Granstrom
For, I'm Eric Granstrom. While on vacation last week on the Washington Coast and Puget Sound, I'd planned to do some crabbing. For most waters in the Sound, the season opened July 1st. It's a Thursday through Monday fishery with a limit in the Sound of five Dungeness crab per person, per day. I like to use salmon entrails as bait so I'll keep everything I don't eat when I fillet my catch, toss it in a leak-proof bag and store it in my chest freezer. I'll also keep the heads, spines and guts from my kokanee catch to use for bait as well. This year, while visiting some new friends in Grayland, they gave me a frozen bag full of razor clam guts and said to try it. I launched from where I was staying at the Thousand Trails campground in LaConner. It's located on the east side of the upper end of Skagit Bay. I ran straight across passed Hope Island to the upper inside edge of Whidbey Island. I dropped my two pots and within two hours had two limits of Dungeness. By the way, the clam guts worked really well! Until next time, Good Fishing!
