Crabing

Post by AFC »

Went crabbing with the kids today at Jaywick beach (clacton) we caught a few small crabs and was wondering can we use these as bait?

Hi AFC, hard back crabs are a good bait for wrasse, crabs about the size of a fifty pence piece are ideal, just pull a back leg off and thread the hook through the socket, dangled under a float is a killer hope this helps.
