How to Catch Dungeness Crab
We had some out-of-town family visiting so I figured a fun West coast activity would be to explore the Boundary Bay tidal flats and pick up some Dungeness crab for dinner.
We went out at low tide which isn’t the ideal time, as it’s best to go 2 hours before low tide (as the crabs are exiting with the water levels). The crab we caught were caught with our hands while walking around the tidal flats. When crabbing remember to bring a mesh bag to carry your catches and a crab ruler to ensure you have legal sized crab. In British Columbia the minimum size regulations are 6.5 inches for Dungeness and 5.5 inches for Red Rock Crab.
