Description

There is nothing quite like a harvest of freshly caught crabs to set the tone for a perfect shoreline feast. Charlie White shows how beginners and veteran crabbers alike can benefit from his decades of experience—from finding and capturing crabs to storing, cleaning, and cooking your catch. Whether you use crab traps or the traditional shoreline, low-tide hunt to bag your quota, this book will aid your cause. This new edition of the classic crabber’s manual contains an up-to-date list of websites where you can find the latest regulations and catch limits for BC, Alaska, Washington, Oregon, and California.

About the author

Charlie White (1925-2010) is an internationally known author, filmmaker, television personality and fish-behaviour researcher. His books on salmon and marine life have sold more than 500,000 copies, putting him among the top authors on fishing. Charlie also developed a series of Undersea Gardens marine exhibits in the United States and Canada, which allow viewers to descend beneath sea level to watch sea life in a natural environment. In 1973, he began experimenting with a remote-controlled underwater television camera to study salmon strike behaviour. His underwater close-ups, in freeze frame and slow motion, revealed for the first time many fascinating new facts about how salmon and other species approach and strike various lures. He has made three feature-length films about his work, two of which are now marketed on video (Why Fish Strike! . . . Why They Don't and In Search of the Ultimate Lure). He has been recognized in Who's Who for his fish-behaviour studies, and he invented a number of popular fishing products, including the Scotty downrigger, Electric Hooksharp, Picture Perfect Lures and Formula X-10 fish feeding stimulant. The Charlie White Theatre in Sidney, BC, which opened in 2002, honours Charlie's contribution to the community. He was also honoured by the University of Victoria as Fisherman of the Year in 2001.
