The RV Lifestyle and Business

We love meeting all sorts of different people in the RV lifestyle. That’s the great thing about the Bay Point Landing Luxury RV Resort, you get to meet new people all the time as well as see some of the great people that have become familiar faces.

However, we’re also in a business so we need to keep track of how our own industry is doing. The good news is that it is doing quite well. What we’re seeing here on the ground is also what we’re seeing in the publications.

RV Lifestyle for the Millennials

One group that has suffered the slings and arrows of press and public disdain for the last decade and more is the generation known as Millennials. This group has been under fire for destroying restaurants, for killing off the movie industry, ending sitcoms, and slaying the Church.

That’s a lot of damage considering most of the time they’re being accused of doing all this, they’ve been twenty and under. Well, the good news is that now that Millennials are all over the age of 18, they’re falling into familiar spending patterns. One of those patterns is the amount of spending in the consumer discretionary category. Why is that interesting to us? Well, RVs fall into that category.

Moving on Up

The above category has seen an increase of 17% overall and RVs in particular have seen an increase of 17.2%. Winnebago, specifically, has had an 18% increase in sales. This is great news as the industry was reeling in the late 2000s as we hit a 30-year nadir.

Millennials finally have time and money enough to get out and enjoy what previous generations were already enjoying. So, don’t be surprised if many of the RV set seem to look a lot younger than stereotypes would indicate.

Crabbing in Coos Bay, Part Three

In our previous two segments we discussed the legal aspects of crabbing in Coos Bay and at Bay Point Landing Luxury RV Resort including the type of gear and bait you need to get started. So, in this final installment we’ll talk about exactly how to crab while you’re staying here with us.

You’re on a Boat

When crabbing from a boat, you need to make sure that you set your pots far enough away that they aren’t interfering with each other and you should let your pots sit for 30 to 45 minutes. So, you’ve let your gear sit for long enough, now you need to find your buoy and approach it slowly.

Grab the line just below said buoy with your hand. If you used rings, pull quickly right away so that it forms a basket and traps the crab.

Sitting on a dock

Tie your crab line to a dock or pier. Throw the pot or ring into the water and let it set for 30 to 45 minutes for pots and 10 to 20 with rings. To collect it you’ll need to grab the crab line below wher4e you attached it and if using rings, use a consistent speed on pulling it up.

Sorting the Crabs

You’ll need to sort your crab quickly. Be careful not to get pinched or to break the legs. You need to keep only male crabs. Sometimes a quick shake will get them out of the pot faster than reaching in there for them. Once you’ve got them sorted, you’ll need to measure them.

Male crabs should be 5 ¾ inches across the back in width. As just an FYI, soft shelled crab are not really worth keeping as they will taste stringy.
