A blog about the family Burnett, Dillon, Korpi, Hoefer and others. Little tidbits and photos about family and the book I am researching and writing. Also, ongoing posts about and for the September 2017 Family Reunion.
Upcoming 2016 Nehalem Bay Crab Derby at the Jetty Fishery
What is the crab derby you might be asking? We put these little tags on 26 commercial size crabs and release them out into the bay. As long as you have a ticket, while your crabbing if you catch a crab with a tag on it then you will win a prize correlated with the letter on the crab. Prizes we had last year included a crabbing weekend, nights in the cabin, $1000 cash etc. The proceeds of the ticket sales go to the Rockaway Beach Lions Club and the Northwest Fish and Wildlife, and the crab you catch goes to your tummy
