Update: https://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/viewtopic.php?pid=2648711#p2648711 So to get away from this school/work thing, I was thinking about crabbing and clam digging. Never thought of it before, but heard that Newport OR was a good place to do these things so have decided I should get my shellfish license and try it out. What I am uncertain of now is if it is worth it to buy one of those "expensive" crab pots, or just go with a few cheapie recreational use crap traps since it won't be a weekly thing and I'm on a student budget. Got plenty of time to decide... since well... I hear the best part of the season is over. But the season for razor clams is back to safe non toxic eating levels... so maybe try that? I have a shovel. lol Any tips, advice, and experience with PNW crabbing or claming welcome!
