If you’ve been wanting to start catching those delicious Dungeness crab but don’t have the gear or perhaps don’t even know where to start, there are places around Newport like Newport Marina Store & Yaquina Bay Charters that have you covered, the one-stop shopping for all things crabbing (they also have an assortment of fishing and clamming gear ... and snacks!). They offer everything from crab ring rentals, crab gauges, shellfish licenses, even bait — so all you have to do is show up, grab your gear and start catching those sweet Dungeness crab. 

Newport Marina Store & Yaquina Bay Charters will even clean and cook your crab after you’ve caught them if they have the cooker going. If not, they’ll direct you just one mile south to South Beach Fish Market, where their crab steamer is going all day long, filling the air with that intoxicating aroma of Dungeness crab.
