But, where can you have a vacation with your children and spent the entire day have on the beach have fun catching Crab for under $50 and then eat the Crab for Dinner.
What the secret?
Narrow Channel & Special Built Trap
Siletz Bay is a large Bay one (1) mile south of Lincoln City in area called Taft.
All of the Crab that come into the Bay have to go through a narrow channel.
Children as young as eight (8) standing on the beach, armed with our specially built Crab Trapper can throw the trap into the narrow channel.
They throw like they are lassening something.
They will catch Crab every 5 – 8 minutes

We believe the most important reason for children to learn to Crab is to have a sustainable source of food. We are the Sustainable Living Center of Oregon; our mission is to teach people how to have sustainable food regardless of what happens: a pandemic, credit bubble, EMP, or any natural and man-made catastrophe.
We teach families with children how to catch, clean, and cook Crab so they can always have food to eat. During the first part of 2021, we help 41 families with children between the age of 8- 11 years old learn how to crab from the beach and get them ready for dinner.
The next Free Kids Crab Fest is scheduled after tourist season on Sun Dec 12 2021. CLICK HERE for more information.
We furnished a Free Crab Trapper Set – consisting of one (1) Kid’s Crab Trapper Trap, Bucket, Crab Gauge, location, and instructions – for three hours to Crab from Siletz Bay and Depoe Bay
When the kids caught the Crab, they were shown how to clean and cook the Crab to have Crab for their family dinner.
