I haven't snared Crab from a pier in a long time, and can't say I ever was super successful. Family and friends are talking about a trip to Pacifica Pier, Mother's Day weekend, with some interested in Crabbing. What tips can you guys give me? How much weight do you add to the snares and how, what bait, where on the pier,...? I'm thinking we will be mostly seeing Dungeness Crab. What other species can we expect? I know I will need a Crab gage and a snare or 2 for each person that wants to try. What fish species should be around that area?
