The best time to go crabbing in Oregon is from August until December. This video was made to help answer questions people ask me about everything crabbing. I’ll go over what bait and gear you would need. I hope these tips help.

Other tips: I usually soak my pots for about 1 hour to 1.5 hours. Longer if you like.
Incoming high tide is best, and high slack is preferred. Crabbing is good all along the Oregon coast, so I can’t say one spot is better than another. However, the closer to the mouth is better, I find. But it can get rough near the ocean.
