This is the Port of Newport RV & Marina where we drop off our boat to go crabbing. This little store by it also sales mink and permits for getting on the boat. There is also a little spot next to the store where they will clean and cook the crab for you if you want to. The people here as so helpful and friendly. It is very important to us to go out to our spots desired and set our pots. We usually let the pots sit in the ocean for about 30 minutes to an hour before we check them again. Uncle Charlie or my husband are the ones usually driving the boat. The feeling I get while on the boat is almost indescribable. I get a rush of feelings and emotions, but they are all good and mindful. I would like to point out that we have had more luck using chicken then mink for bait. The chicken draws more attention to the crab. We are very lucky to have this family boat and we are grateful for it. Whenever we come here it is usually me, my husband and my two daughters. A few of my aunts and uncles come as well as my little niece and cousins. This is the only Marina that we have used for our boat, and we appreciate the hospitality that is given to us. This beautiful Marina offers RV campground, water, bridge views, and dining. We also enjoy going on the fishing peer and enjoying the view. There are also public picnic bunkers and public restrooms which is always great. We spend a lot of time here and it is a very important spot for me and my family. It is also walking distance from a few hotels, and it's very close to some of our other favorite spots.
