What you'll do

First you must acquire a “one day” Pacific fishing license for the day you’d like to fish crab. These are available online and you must have one to use my equipment (contact me for assistance). On fishing day we’ll meet in a beachfront neighbourhood of Vancouver. I will take you to the dock where I then give a lesson on baiting and setting your traps. You will also learn to identify your catch by species, size, and sex as It is necessary information to follow the legal parameters. I provide you with upto 2 traps each to use and I supervise as you set the traps. We soak the traps for a minimum of 15 minutes at which point you retrieve them under my supervision and we examine the catch. Once you are comfortable with the process I leave you alone to fish at your own pace. When you are finished (stay as late as 4pm!) for the day the traps will be prepared for storage and collected by myself. Any legal crab you catch are yours to keep. You’ll be targeting two species: Local Red Rock Crab are not available commercially and have some of the sweetest meat in their claws that you could ever eat in your life!! Pristine, Dungeness Crab are world renowned and the West Coast of North America is the only place to get them fresh out of the ocean! - Private adventures for smaller groups or kids, $225. Ask me! - 25% off adventures for groups of 4 - Ask me about weekends :

On a 2012 coming of age road trip with my brother, my main goal here in Vancouver was to catch my own crab. We looked like quite the amateurs our first day on the dock and accordingly caught zero crabs! After great advice from those in the know and years now of experience, I still learn something on every pull of the trap. It’s such a simple endeavour but there’s always something new to learn and you never know what will be in your trap when you pull it up!

What's included

Equipment
*2 clamshell crab traps per person *Bait for each trap *Measuring tool *Paper to wrap your catch *Antibacterial gel
