Crab Boats in Crescent City Harbor, California

Dungeness Crab season usually begins around December 1, and brings a flurry of fishing activity to the the Northern California, Oregon, and Washington Coasts.

Here in Crescent City (photo taken last year) boats wait for the announcement that will allow them to go set their hundreds of crab pots. After a few days they'll pull the pots and hope for a good Crab harvest.
