What's your backup bait if you can't get crabs?

Excellent info Mr. Sharkchum. I had not figured out how to effectively use the claws yet. It was bugging me because I knew that somehow, they had to be good bait. Hated wasting them.

When you do this your actually throwing out a live crab. The little fish don't bother this bait. Also, during the closed crabbing season I use frozen crabs that I purchase and freeze in a paper bag.

Hey oscar, your link doesn't work for me.

One tip I will add that makes either of the above methods a mite easier, in my opinion. By the way, Sharkchum and Oscar are two of the best surf fishermen around, if you hadnt already figured that out from their reports.

Use a pair of garden shears versus a knife. You can hold the crab in your hand and cut the legs, cut the body in half, and words especially well for snipping the tips off the shell in Oscar's whole crab method. You dont need a cutting board or lay it on the sand. Wash it well to keep it from corroding. I also use it for cutting up shad and small mullet or other cut bait.

Bjones - It works on my laptop but not on my phone. I'm really not sure why. Try copying and pasting it.

TT - Is right those shears are great!

Do you pinch on a small weight 2ft above the hook to set it on the bottom, or just let it float?
