Chicken legs, thighs, wings, offal in a bait bags work best; whatever is cheap and about to be thrown away. Salmon carcass are better, but attract seals as well.
I’ve filled crab pots in a matter of hours on the east side of Sand Island near where Baker Bay opens to the Columbia.
Make sure to add weights to your pots if you want to find them in the same place after a tide cycle or just short soak them and hang out for a couple hours in the dinghy and fish.
