Crab boats at Pillar Point Harbor /Half Moon Bay

gordon wing | Jan 1, 2008 09:21 AM

Sunday we went down to get some crab at Princeton/Pillar Point Harbor /Half Moon Bay.
We were making ciappino but we got a late start and there were no crabs to be had at 3"30pm. Talked with the nice folks on "The Cricket" - they said that shoppers should be there by 11am or noon. Or to call and reserve during the week..... 925. 757-8615.
Prices that day were about $5.00 a pound. This will fluctuate with the size of the catch and other factors. Recent prices at 99 Ranch have been in this area as well. It was still a gorgeous drive down the coast and fun to talk with the fishermen. They showed us some of the crab that they were holding for those who had reserved them and a strange looking crab - they called a rock crab that was sorta scary looking. We ended up back in Pacifica at a local fish market buying crab for our dinner. The cioppino came out great. We made some garlic bread with some Semifreddi seeded bagette - the toasted fennel and anise seeds were perfect with the soup.
