Crabbing with the Rib

Its been too quiet in this forum so here is a new post. Just a video of some crabbing near Baker Beach. Water was too calm for some good wave jumping shots. The drone is now back operational so more aerial shots soon.

Great video! Never thought about a camera in the pot.

How deep were you working? Seemed to have a decent amount of light. In Monterey (and, as near as I can recall, out of Pillar Point), we were working about 230 feet.

Was that the Jeremiah O'Brien at the beginning of the vid?

Last, where'd you launch out of?

Thats the Red Oak Victory in Richmond, right where I launch (yearly pass at the ramp = you can find me there everyday). I think that was only 30 feet where we dropped the GoPro in the pot. Ive been busy at work and haven't done any scuba classes yet but watching that underwater footage keeps me motivated to get into it. I was amazed at what the bottom looked like at 30 feet with the sand and all the little flounder looking fish everywhere, it will probably blow my mind to go down and see underwater life in real life.


Peter, we pass Horseshoe Cove all the time so let me know if you feel like some crabs. I wish there were more rib.netters out here, it would be cool to see a meet/bbq on Angel Island and fill up that cove with ribs/sibs...but in reality its more like just me and the park ranger rib tied up next to each other

Those little flatfish are sanddabs - the same ones targeted by the charter rec boats when rockfish and salmon are closed. I think they spawn shallow and move to deeper water as they get bigger. They're like chameleons, cahnging color and pattern to match the substrate.

Excellent idea with the GoPro. I watched it in horror. Crabs - one of the reasons I ALWAYS wear a lifejacket.

You Bay types should organize a get-together, even a little one. You call 'em a RIBnet Cruise or Conference. I'm gonna do one in Ireland in 2015 if everything pans out. Plan it and they will come (I tell myself)

Waaay back in 2009(?) I initiated a "Feeder Cruise" here and met tonymac who has proven to be an excellent example of the human condition. I recommend that you try one

I've met a couple of people through RIB.net; a Russian guy who bought a boat for diving (haven't heard from him in a few years), TwoRotor, who donated his old leaking fuel tank, Peter_C who I knew before he showed up here, and I think one other who I can't remember. There are several of us now from the greater North/Central California area though. Might be worth a shot.

One of the reasons I enjoy scuba diving The underwater life is incredible. A video was just posted by someone I know from Pt. Lobos and they were scratching a harbor seal that was enjoying it. Here bobbing at the surface is where you can meet the BIG white fish errr shark. I do know they now have a few great whites on video taken at Pt. Lobos.

We should! Around May when the weather has warmed up a little, the days are longer, yet the grass is still green. Of course we could do a quick meet and greet most anytime of the year with next to zero planning. Just a hey, I am headed out to _____ so if anyone else is out there I will be on channel __. Here is a picture of my boat so you can recognize it. (Mine is pretty easy to spot with the wheels up.)

For wakeboarding we used to hold meet and greets all the time. We would often get 40 people for lunch, with about 15 boats. Always fun to put screen names to faces.
