If you are sure that the month is correct, it is time for you to follow these following steps to catch one:

    1. The first thing that you need to do is to get a wetsuit. If you do not have one, you are suggested to purchase one by going to the Nook Stop that is located in the Resident Services. You can purchase it by using your Nook Miles. Aside from that store, it is also available to purchase in the cabinet in the store named Nook’s Cranny.
    2. After getting a wetsuit in your hand, the next thing that you have to do is to walk up to the edge of the ocean to start swimming into it.
    3. Do not forget to look for bubbles appearing on the surface of the water when swimming around as it is the indication of the location of the sea creature, not necessarily a Dungeness Crab. It is actually a bit of a trial and error situation.
    4. When the bubbles start to appear, it is time for you to swim up to the location and then press Y to dive down.
    5. Once you are under the water, remember to use your directional stick and then press A to swim towards the bubbles.
    6. By following the step, you should be able to see a shadow and it is possible for it to move. If the shadow that moves slowly is large, the chance of it being the creature that you want is high.
    7. Upon seeing the shadow, all that should be done is to catch up to it before you run out of the air and you will be able to automatically capture it.
    8. When you are back to the surface, check what creature that you just captured and see if it is true that it is a Dungeness Crab.
