Most of Puget Sound closed to recreational crabbing on Sept. 2, and summer catch reports are due by midnight on Oct. 1. The only waters left open are Marine Areas 7 North and 7 South, in the San Juan Islands, but crabbers there must now use winter catch record cards.

Crabbers can submit summer catch record cards to the state Department of Fish and Wildlife by mail at CRC Unit, 600 Capitol Way N., Olympia, 98501, or online through Oct. 1.

Those failing to file on time face a $10 fine when they purchase a 2014 Puget Sound crab endorsement.
