My son and I plan to camp in the San Juans in August and bring our kayak. Both of us are nuts about crab and other fine things that come from the sea and were wondering about permits to catch and consume a crab (or three) while there. Neither of us has done this before, but are reasonably sure there must be a state agency that regulates this. We are out-of-staters not wanting to fall afoul of the wildlife regs in Washington. (I guess this is the equivalent of giving visitors to our state advice on fly fishing and locations of likely fishing holes.)
Any suggestions on the how-to's or e-mail addresses for us to contact the appropriate state agency?
