After delays due to weight and price negotiations, and despite rough seas over the weekend that led to one fishing boat requiring rescue by the Coast Guard, Humboldt welcomed crab boats to its docks and their haul of Dungeness to its tables. Boats like the Sandy B
, The Corregidor
, the Josie L
and the Jenna Lee
pulled the coveted crustaceans from their live wells for customers who came to the docks for the first taste of the season.
