Reminder that all summer crab catch cards are due by October 1st. WDFW is still fining $10 for all cards not turned in, so be sure to do this to avoid a fine when buying your license next year.

Crabbers can submit catch record cards to WDFW by mail at CRC Unit, 600 Capitol Way N., Olympia, WA 98501-1091. They can also report their catch online at > from Sept. 2 through Oct. 1.

Sport crabbers who fish for Dungeness crab in any area of Puget Sound after Sept. 1 must record their harvest on winter catch record cards. Winter cards, which are free to those with crab endorsements, are available at sporting goods stores and other license vendors across the state.
