Shaun Walker — The Times-Standard

James Seat of Blue Lake digs for sand crabs on Trinidad State Beach on a rainy Wednesday afternoon. The thumb-sized crustaceans are excellent bait for fishing for delicious surf perch, he said. Showers were expected through this afternoon on the coast, and then a 20-percent chance of showers through 11 a.m. Friday. Saturday should be dry and a short rainstorm should hit on Sunday.
