Crab Fishing

What is everyone looking at? On this particular weekend in San Francisco, I spied this particular family crab fishing by lowering their hoop nets from the pier. It is definitely a sport that requires patience. Once the net is dropped in the water, it is a waiting and hoping game. By the way, crabbers must have a fishing license even for 1 day.

When the crabbers weren't looking, a seal like the one at the lower left hand corner of the picture did a little fishing on his or her own.

I am not sure if this creature is the same as the one above, but a handful of seals were making their rounds in the area hoping to get a meal.

They'd better watch out they don't catch a seal!

I would be more excited about seeing a seal.
