I was at the aquarium pier in seattle from 8-11pm! Got about a dozen squid, most of which were really small though. Finally bought a light, and it seems bright enough to get some squid with.

keep in mind that using game fish for crab bait "salmon" is illegal. dont matter what you put in pot it wont fish unless it there for 18 hours, best thing is clams, best chance of getting crabs is find a mussel for bait and let the pot soak for a week then come back and get your crab when its full :) nothing but jumbos, keep in mind that squid is 65 cents a pound in 25 pound boxes


only landlocked salmon are classified as game fish, anadromous are classified as food fish. and the exact phrase out of the regulation pamphlet is as follows - harvest and possession rules / you may not: "use SALMON, HERRING, or HALIBUT for anything other than human consumption or fishing bait." (pg 20)
So unless im missing something in the rule book i see absolutely nothing illegal about using the otherwise unusable bits of my saltwater caught salmon for crab bait. if you see something i haven't please point it out, using salmon head has been my go to bait for as long as i have been crabbing.

no problem if you got your salmon punch card and it has to be on you, problem is Indians sell it for bait when it could be sold for food so game wardens got really little mad, my suggestion is dont make bait at dock then nothing would be said. nothings a problem till some yahoo reports you :( be careful, anadromous fish are salt water then spawn in fresh, but in washington they say salmon is game fish so we cant shoot them with a bow set up. trust me about fish cops i've seen them hide in dumpsters, and use 2 mile scopes, soak time is the key to crab fishing bait set up for commercial is 2 plastic jars with holes, one for squid, one for a half of razor clam but in the sound drill 1/16 inch holes cause the sea fleas eat your bait in 4 hours and use onion sack full of squid, herring, carcass, for hang bait, squid fishes for about 4-6 hours- bringing in fish and other sea life, crab follow then get in pot, while the herring fishes for 2 days cause the fish oils takes longer to break down, and chewy sack keeps them busy so they don't escape, but that half of a razor clam "spit the stomach" the black goo will fish for 4 days and bring in more crab.

Went down to the seattle pier again last night. Caught 2 fatty ones, about 7" and about 6 small 3" ones. Used a green 2.5" jig. Also use a small 1.5" pink jig that they seemed to go straight for. Will be there tonight again!

I haven't caught anything in edmonds yet. Do you have to bring your own power source for light?

you can use a lantern, some people take small generators and floodlamps out. The regs are available at any sporting goods store or online at the fish and wildlife webpage. I'll be the one in the green coat and khaki cargo pants- probably hit it around 5:30 so it leaves time to relocate if things are slow.

You can use whatever light source you want.
The regulation for squid is attached.
