I want Crabs

So I am not looking for exact coordinates or anything, but Iím wanting to target spider crabs specifically with hoop nets. Was wondering what are good areas to target for them? Near jetties, rock likes, kelp beds, open flats fo sand, etc.. I live a few mins from Kings Harbor so that would be my target area to hoop. Any advice would be much appreciated.

Why do you want spider crabs? I always caught them as by-catch when lobster hooping King Harbor (inside & out). Gave them all to my Korean mother-in-law. Some were full and some were empty.

I have caught them toward the end of Zuniga, either side of the channel, closer to the channel with out getting killed.

As a kid, we caught them decades ago off the Redondo horseshoe pier. Our crab trap consisted of a bicycle rim with nylon netting and a bridle line for hauling it up on the pier. For bait, a mackerel tied in the middle of the net. When retrieving the trap, the crab's legs fall through the netting making it very difficult for them the get out of the net. Spiders were the most common, Dungeness were less frequent.

Be cautious of eating anything that lives on the bottom of LA Harbor. There are tons of Monsanto's DDT sitting on the ocean bottom off Whites' point, and the harbor is the resting ground for many of the toxins that wash into the storm drains from the city. Not to mention the many industrial businesses that operate there with many accidental containments.
