I grew up fishing in the Midwest, and while I like to eat crab, I don’t know the first thing about how to catch one.
That’s why the trip to Kelly’s Brighton Marina was so exciting. I had no idea what to expect. When you walk up to the shop it feels like a theme park. Kelly has spent the time to make this place unique. There are wood cutouts everywhere for fun photo opportunities. He also has a great selection of craft beer and plenty of picnic tables for hanging out either before or after your crabbing adventure. It’s a very welcoming atmosphere.
We met Kelly and let me tell you, he’s a character. Every once in awhile you meet someone and realize that they are doing what they were born to do. Kelly is that guy. He’s very good at what he does (to the point where it seems effortless), he’s relaxing to be around, and he’s hilarious. After we got the basic rundown from him, it was time for some crabbing on the Oregon coast!
