Anacortes native Ken Crews closed the 2019-2020 crab season Sunday on return to Cap Sante Marina from a day of crabbing on Skagit Bay. Crews, who has been crabbing for 30 years, skippers the “Jewlz,” a familiar working boat to locals. His son Kyle is also a commercial fisherman. Both men are graduates of Anacortes High School.

About Photographer Steve Berentson

A fourth generation Skagit County native who was moved kicking and screaming from this island community in 1960. I finally reclaimed an Anacortes address in 1980, and I have been in constant celebration of my return since that time. Many of us who call Anacortes home love Fidalgo Island for its natural assets: among them are rugged beaches, pristine lakes, thousands of acres of forestland and some awesome views of the Skagit Valley and surrounding islands. Another element of my love affair with this community is its people, both natives and immigrants. They will “star” in many of my journal entries.
