If you really want to catch crab you need a boat. I'm pretty sure the RV park on Netarts rents boats. We've stayed there but never crabbed the bay.
Good luck, Dan

Go to Garibaldi, rent a boat, drop pots across from the Coast Guard Station in Crab Bay (if you see 528,972,332,497 crab bouys, that's the spot!), run across the bay and fish for some salmon/steel, go back after a couple hours and check/rebait. Repeat till crab limit is caught

Any info. really would be great.If not there,than I guess we'll go back

Shore crabbing

Shore crabbing

I saw some guys throwing traps from shore last weekend at the Alsea. I bet if you tossed one in Netarts at low tide and let it soak till the next low you may have some luck. Rings don't work from shore at all. I'd try the inner bay, less current to deal with.
Netarts is a special place. I proposed to my second wife there 3 years ago last week.
Good luck, Dan

Halibuthitman made a post awhile back about a good dock in Newport... near a hotel I think. Search for it, sounded like a great place to pier crab.

You can rent a boat from the Big Spruce RV Park at the top of the hill from the boat put in. They also have a cleaning station there also. I have crabbed on the side of the spit as you are going out to the mouth. Netarts is really known for the clam digging but you will get some crab if you hit it an hour before High tide to and hour after high tide. I took my sister out there after clamming and her grandson used a limber fishing pole with the tiny bait boxes with loops on it. This kid had a ball and he still talks about that time. Good Luck........Fish-On Fred
