wanting to take advantage of the good weather, i grabbed lunch at the ferry building and took a stroll down embarcadero with a friend today. while walking near one of the piers, we saw these people hauling in nets from the water. intrigued, we walked down the pier to investigate what was going on. needless to say we were shocked to see these two people crabbing! apparently its easy to catch rock crabs as well as dungeness crab, though its illegal to catch and keep dungeness in the bay. they had a bucket with a bunch of sizeable crabs as well as a small heater to boil the crabs and make hot toddys. the whole operation was very basic but it got the job done and honestly it looked like a blast. i think i have found my new hobby!
