Using Traps is the easiest and most productive method for harvesting Dungeness Crabs in Southern Oregon.  The Crabs can enter the trap and cannot exit the trap.  Small crabs, undersized crabs, can escape through special escape hatches leaving only large, 'Dinner Plate' size crabs left.  Check out the Team aFISHionados video to see how to setup and rig traps for Dungeness Crab Fishing.  'Dinner Plates' included!
