I would imagine this has been asked a million times before but could someone please help me with a crab issue (no pun intended):shutup:

anyway just got back from a walk on the beach with the dog, took a bucket and collected about 30 green and red crabs, all hard back. what i would like to know is are these any good for bait ? if so how? anyway i released them all before coming home because i couldn't decide, any help appreciated.
lately i have caught a few codling and all have had plenty of small crabs in the stomach's.

CHEERS

be careful when taking small edible crabs as you could end up in trouble. theres all sorts of laws on sizes and using them for bait.

Some of the guys in know use red crab meat in finger bandages. Haven't got around to trying it out though
