Crab Bounty

Posted by OCVA / March 6, 2012

Crabbing is always great fun and the crab is a tasty reward, but during the month of September, in Winchester Bay, a cash prize makes crabbing VERY rewarding. Crab are tagged with numbered metal tags. One of those numbers is sealed in the vault of Umpqua Bank. If you register that number before the end of the contest, you win the cash prize.

The envelope will be opened on October 1 at 3:00 pm at the Sportmen’s Cannery to see if Captain Umpclaw has been caught again this year and the $1,000 prize awarded. If he was not caught there will be a lottery of those turning in tags (17 to date), and prizes of $500, $300 and $200 will be given.

There is still time and tags must be turned into our sponsor, Sportsmen’s Cannery on October 1 by 2:00 pm. Information: 541-271-4471 email:
