Yea crab were giving some anglers stick behind birds last week, Hopefully they will start coming back, cod and bass love em, Yea your going to lose bait, But fish might beat the crabs to your bait.

Your right right in one respect they are returning from the top end of the Channel. Where they will probably have spawned. Hence all the "yearling codlets" that get caught this time of year. They are just starting to eat worms after feeding on micro organisms.
When people say they are just arriving they are also correct as it's now that they reach the Welsh side of the channel and work thier way back downstream and out of the channel.
In autumn the main bulk of fish enter the channel and swim upstream along the deeper water on the English side.
Naturally some drift across to the Welsh side which are the early fish the boats tend to catch.
As well as October fish at Redwick and Magor.
