Velvet Crabs

Post by cookiemonster »

Hi all are these types of crab any good as bait as my local lidl store is selling frozen packs of them whole. But thought that I would get someone elses view on this type of crab before I spend my money on something as bait which turns out to be totally useless.......Colin :-/ :-/ :-/ :-/ :-/ :-/ :-/

Hi colin :D
Never used them myself,I buy soft shell crabs fron the chinese supermarket(frozen).These are caught in the pacific :-O
I`ve used them on occassions and caught large flounders,nothing other than that to date :(( :((
Will keep trying though :D lakey had a flattie using them when we fished weybourne and a few of us will be using them at cart gap on sunday
Will let you know how we go,watch for reports :D
