Crabs

Postby morrow » Tue Sep 16, 2014 4:08 pm

Does anybody know were I can get crab at the mo?

Looked/phoned all over the place and it seems so scarce :think:

Should of brought a load back from Brixham 50p per crab and some lovely ones

Just wanted a couple for this weekend, If nothing seems to be around the big wrasse love them :)

Use the small hardbacks Jay....hook them through a leg socket,they'll nail them just as much as a peeler:)

Limpets are a damn good alternative for wrasse Jay and plentiful on most rock marks.

They could be hardbacks?

Ive had codling on hardbacks at otterspool and the wrasse still take them although I prefer peeler

Jay just use limpet or rag. It's just as effective and wouldn't waste decent crab on wrasse. I'd save them for the cod
