2007 Crab Season is on as of Today!

Thanks to AlaskaSteve, we know that prices are settled and the Bristol Bay King crab season is on….

Our crab guys settled on price today and started baiting up in preparation to head out – some have left already. The price is up nicely from last year, so with the higher quota it should be a banner year.

    I was just over there and saw that. I wondered if you got a chance to post about it.
    I’m glad the boys will get a little more for their effort this year. And check out Steve’s pics. He ROCKS.

    Dave, they film in October ( king crab ) and January ( Opilio crab ). The new season’s film usually airs ( in the U.S. ) in April and May. At least that’s the pattern Discovery Channel has followed for the past couple of years. It seems like such a long, long, long time away * SIGH* But in the meantime, we have Opilia here to keep us afloat ( pun intended ) :0)

    I am so happy the guys are back fishing. I thought waiting for football season every year was the worst, but they’ve got the pre-season and and endless supply of promotional crap. Waiting for a new season of DC is so much worse. Discovery doesn’t even put it in reruns (we’re not all going to buy the DVDs – duh). At least now that the season has started, I can go eat King Crabs at local restaurants, even though the crabs won’t have their post mortem TV debuts till 2008. I can’t wait to see the show in HD, but somehow I don’t think Sig’s gonna look that great….
