CRABFEST at DOCKSIDE!
Ahoy and Happy New Year to all long time Bonnie Marietta and Dockside fish list folks, and welcome aboard to those that have joined more recently!
Of course we are in Capt. Mark’s off season when it comes to fishing, so emails are limited to only special events here at Dockside, but be ready because May 1st isn’t too far away and King Salmon season is soon approaching. This year the Captain hopes for even better Salmon fishing and to finally see a few Albacore that seem to keep giving the Central Coast the slip.
In recent fishing news, the pelagic season started off slowly but quickly gained steam bringing us ample supplies of Swordfish, Thresher Shark, Mako Shark, Opah, Bluefin Tuna, and the occasional Louvar over the last couple months. We have been blessed to have had outstanding supplies in the Market, as well as featured in the Restaurant. As a matter of fact, Swordfish has been our fish of the day frequently. At $10.95 for a 6-ounce portion with sides, it is a real value. Much thanks to Capt. Roff and Capt. Schoditsch of the Diane Susan, Capt. LeBeck of the Trailblazer, and Capt. Mintz of the DJ.
But the real purpose of this email to let all of you know about our upcoming Dungeness Crab Festival here at Dockside Restaurant. Capt. Ward of the Dancing Bear, and Capt. Maharry of the New Mohay have been providing us with good supplies of local Dungeness Crabs. The efforts of these two captains allow us to feature this year’s first CRAB FEST here at Dockside.
Mark your calendars for this Friday, Saturday and Sunday, January 23rd, 24th, and 25th. CRAB FEST will be offered at lunch and dinner and will include a fresh local, cooked, cleaned, cracked, and chilled Dungeness Crab and all the usual Dockside sides and fixings for $26.95. These scrumptious-sidewinders average 2-pounds live weight, and are both delicious and fun to eat. CRAB FEST is being featured at or Restaurant only; however we do have both live and cooked available at the Market.
Again, Friday the 23rd, Saturday the 24th, and Sunday the 25th, lunch or dinner, local Dungeness Crabs at Dockside. By reservation only, so call now 805-772-8100.
