Commercial crab season opens Dec. 1

Crab pots are loaded on the Miss Emily at the Port of Brookings Harbor in anticipation of the start of crab season.

Waving away hovering gulls, Brookings commercial fisherman Bernie Lindley and his crew tossed blocks of frozen squid onto a table, chopping and stuffing it into little pots, screwing the lids on tight and tossing them into buckets.

“It’s bait for crab fishing,” Lindley said. 

The crew are among hundreds of commercial fishermen along the Oregon Coast busily preparing for the Dec. 1 opening of the Dungeness crab season.


One big pile at a time

Trash Dogs volunteers with their latest haul: trash collected along Carpenterville Road north of Brookings.

The Trash Dogs were awarded another grant earlier this month to continue the work they’ve done for the past seven years, picking up dumped trash in U.S. Forest Service lands in Curry County.

The $12,500 grant will be used to pay for dump fees and mileage accrued by the volunteers who drive to remote areas and collect trash — from junk mail to vehicles — people have dumped in the woods. The grant runs through autumn 2016.
