Crab season was delayed from the Gualala River north because the Dungeness Crab samples weren't big enough. Since the waters off the Mendocino Coast have been opened to commercial fishing, crab boats have been plying our waters. Bettye Winters photographed a boat off of Irish Beach. She said the boat's light lit up her room.
The boats work day and night.
The fog is about to catch up to the crab boat. Lovely photo. Thanks to Bettye for allowing me to share her photos with you here.
