Vad du kommer att göra

We will meet at a pier in the Marina/Presidio district of San Francisco where we will be located near the Golden Gate Bridge. The views of the water will be spectacular and because of the size of the pier we will have more than enough room to spread out and try our techniques. Make sure to arrive early so you can find parking and pay for it if need be near The Warming Hut cafe.

Once all the guests have arrived we will learn to setup the equipment we will supply with very detailed explanation of how and why we use particular gear. Once we have setup our rods, filled our bait in our traps we will learn the different forms of casting and the technique of reeling. Because we are fishing for crab there is a different approach to how you catch crab off of a rod and reel.

Because of Department Fish and Game laws we will not be allowed to take home any Dungeness crab unfortunately not only because the Bay is a protected estuary but because we will be crabbing outside of the regular season. As a result we will be catching rock & red crab which are edible and delicious crabs to take home.

Please join me as many others have to see if spending an afternoon out on the waterfront of the bay, meeting new people and learning a skill is right for you!

Please realize that this is predominantly about learning how to catch crab and is meant to be catch and release only! This will include detailed instructions on how to crab so you can do it yourself!

My name is Alex and I am an avid fisherman and an ocean lover. I am a born and raised San Francisco Native who grew up on the bay's wonderful and diverse coastal lifestyle.

After being a sushi chef & a ceviche chef early in my professional career it's no wonder I have an an affinity for quality seafood and fresh sustainable practices. With 10 years of crabbing I have honed my experience and knowledge of these tasty crustaceans. From my time in restaurants and in the service industry for nearly 15 years I came to realize I needed to start my own business encompassing different passions of mine.

I have been running "The Art of Crabbing" which is THE original bay area crabbing experience going for Dungeness. The season for Dungeness goes from Nov-June.

Var ni kommer att vara

I will be either outside of the Warming Hut Cafe or on the pier itself depending on when you show up. Because it can get very busy I usually stand closer to the pier with almost a poles sticking out of my cart. If you booked the afternoon session I will more than likely already be out on the pier. I shouldn't be too hard to miss and I love this location because of the view, accessibility to drinks/snacks and relative ease for catching something!

Although our group--including Alex, another guest, and myself--only caught 3 crabs, I had a fantastic time. Alex is a very casual, chill host who has plenty of stories and commentaries up his sleeve, and you'll feel like you're trying something new with an old friend, as opposed to going through the motions of a paid tour. Highly recommended if you're looking for an informal yet informative learning experience while being out and getting fresh air in this Covid era.

This was a really wonderful way to enjoy a beautiful day outside. Alex was knowledgable, friendly, and really set the stage up to help the individuals in my group and I learn something new. We had a great time and the group didn't stop raving about what a great day that we had over our meal of fresh, steamed, crab! Between 4 of us, we caught 12 (can't say that this is what normally happens, but it did happen for us)!

Such a nice teacher. Alex encourages you to learn and enjoy this experience. If you have never touched fishing rod or don't have much experience just take his class and you will enjoy it so much !

Crab fishing with Alex was absolutely amazing! Never would I have thought that I'd come home with 8 giant crabs 🦀 freshly caught for dinner! Alex was a super friendly host, made sure to prepare and equip us with the tools and knowledge needed to succeed. Couldn't have had our delicious crab dinner without your help! Highly recommend!!!

Memorable experience. We learned the techniques which were super fun. We caught so many crabs and they were delicious... Alex and all his helpers are super friendly and helpful.

What a fun experience! It was my first time fishing and our group had a blast learning how to fish specifically for crab. We didn't expect to come home with so many! It took us a while to get the hang of the technique, but once we did it was one after another. Kudos to John who was instrumental in setting us up for success by casting far & offering his mackerel as bait. Tip: Be sure to dress warm because it gets super cold there. Highly recommended & would love to do this again!
