  1. It's always crab season in LA. Unless you're talking soft shell crab (blue crab) then May-September.

    1. iirc, dungeness crab season in ca ranges from mid nov through jun/jul.

        I wasn't assuming the OP was going crabbing, but can be found in LA year round.

          lol. i always associated crabbing season with the best quality crab......not that i would know though considering that i am deathly allergic to crab. =)

            If the Dungeness crab isn't coming from California it comes from Oregon, Washington, Alaska or Canada.
