good stuff! I've heard live prawn & shrimp is an excellent bait but I presumed dead it would be pants, I wonder what other species would go for them, nice report, Rob........

Had bass ,bream ,pout and whiting on them before,one thing tho ,they MUST be the shell on cooked ones,Must be loaded with eggs underneath ,leave the shell on (slows the crabs up a bit) and give the head a good squeeze to release the juices first,don't forget to whip them on lightly with a bit of elastic as well.
