The harbor commission will be deciding on Tuesday, December 7th, whether or not to raise the rent on Boat slips. This could cause the harbor more hardship than it is worth. Currently, the Crescent City Harbor charges twice the amount for boats to rent a slip than what is charged in Brookings Oregon. This would increase the rent by triple the amount.
The Harbor commissioners really need to reconsider raising the rent on boat slips as this is not LA nor the Bay area. An increase in rent will result in a ghost harbor.
Secondly, although the sport fishermen are getting all the crab they want, that isn’t so for the commercial fishermen. The way to tell depends on how many tractor-trailer trucks are in the harbor retrieving the crab from the boats. if there are 12 tractor-trailers that tells people there are plenty of crabs and it is a good season, however, there have only been 5 tractor-trailer trucks at any one time.
