ive got my own traps and get a good supply of crab of all sizes and find some crabs can be to big the massive ones are only good on 4/0 plus hooks ya better off using medium size ones and use 1 and a half or 2 crabs as a sausage

i usually get the white reag when i'm after blow lug there aren't huge numbers but i reckon i could collect enough if i went for it, they are mostly kind of small though. I think almost everywhere i've ever dug lug there have been white's about.
On thing though is that they are slow growing and easily depleated, the large ones are about twelve years old.

thats why i only take a small number normally, just to tip baits, the ones i use are normally only about 10cm long.
The ones i dig in Ireland are twice that.
