FREE Crabbing Clinic

2014 Crabbing Clinics


Prior to crabbing, participants will meet at the pavilion located at the end of SW 51st St in the Historic Taft District of Lincoln City for a brief orientation. The orientation will familiarize participants with Oregon’s crabbing regulations, harvest methods, identification, and cleaning and cooking techniques. Parking is available between Mo’s Restaurant and the pavilion.


Each crabber over the age of 14 will need:

    Shellfish license
    Crab traps
    Crab measure
    5 gallon bucket
    Large package of chicken legs for bait
    Pair of rubber gloves to protect your fingers

Each crabber is allowed to crab with up to 3 devices. Crab pots, crab rings and the small triangular crab traps are inefficient for use while crabbing from shore. Crabs snares used with fishing poles work well but not nearly as well as folding crab traps.

NOTE: Crab Max folding crab traps with hand lines will be available for purchase on site the day of the clinic. Payment must be made by cash or check only. If you plan to buy equipment at the clinic please arrive 30 minutes early.
