OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) - The Puget Sound recreational winter crabbing season is coming to a close.

The state Department of Fish and Wildlife says Puget Sound marine areas now open for recreational crabbing will close at 5 p.m. on Dec. 31. Sport crabbers licensed to fish for Dungeness crab in the Sound will have until Feb. 1 to report their winter results, and that can be done online.

Those who fail to submit a winter catch report are subject to a $10 fine when they purchase their 2017 crab endorsement.

After Dec. 31, all Puget Sound marine areas will be closed to recreational crabbing until summer.
