    Re: Crabbing/Fishin This Weekend?

    Those swells look safe.
    I just read Bodega Wx for Sunday that calls for 5’ @ 12 seconds that’s very do-able but with great caution in smaller boats.

    Planning on going to HMB on Sunday, the forecast on windy.com is 4-5ft swell over 9 seconds. Have 22ft center console boat. Are these conditions fishable? Do you add wave height + swell? So this would be 8-10ft waves over 9 seconds?

    Kevin, I agree with Sean. I took my alumaweld out in heavy seas one time too many, and almost had a wave swamp me over the back of the transom. Luckily the bilge pump kept up. Be careful! A big wave can take you down in a matter of seconds.

    I’m at Bodega Dunes this weekend but opted not to crab due to big swells. Better safe than sorry.
