Report Details

very much sand in Cove Beach at this 0.3 low tide. Trying for razor clams, I mistook the little bubble when I tapped the dimple in the wet sand and scooped up a large female crab with bright red egg sack (sponge).This happened 5 times! No razor clams. (one person had one clam)In each case I could return the crab unharmed, and she quickly dug herself back in.

Temperature: 50 F. Cloud Cover: Cloudy. Wind Velocity: Moderate. Wind Direction: SW. Tide Level: 0.3 feet.

Notable Wildlife

at least 5 female crabs with large red egg "sponges"mistaken for razor clams.Quickly reburied them.

The wrack line contained small (2-4") crab casings, clam shells and broken sand dollars. There was a small land slide near a house drain line - see picture. The sand level was low on the north end of mile 307 which leaves the rocks uncovered.
