Catching Dinner

Just a few photos of our lovely fishing trip to Elger Bay, which I wrote a bit about a few weeks ago here. I finally downloaded the camera and found some great shots of the kids and the seafood that I thought I'd share. ;)

Zooming, aka "turning on the air conditioning"

One day's Dungeness crab haul.

Using the crab measurer to see whether or not she's a keeper. ;)

A decent-sized Dungie

A Dogfish (shark) on the line. These little turkeys fight HARD!

Scarlet hauling up a flounder.

Elger Point, I think? With our crab buoy floating off to the right. What a beautiful view!

A bag full o' flounder!

Our next venture out into the salt will be to chase down a salmon or two. In addition to the annual summer salmon run, this is also a pink salmon year - they only run in odd numbered years - so our odds of landing a salmon are decent if we can find them in the right place at the right time. They're finally coming into the Puget Sound in respectable numbers, and headed for the rivers. So if we miss them in the salt, we might still have a chance at nabbing one in fresh water. Now we just need to find the time to get out there and fish!


  1. What a fabulous way to enjoy a day. No doubt it was founder and crab that was enjoyed later.

    Here is raising my glass to your salmon (pink) run.


  2. Wow, love all that crab. What a variety you have.
