Peelers should be starting round about now, first week in June is almost guaranteed to produce a decent amount. Were there many traps around Tayport? Last year was a joke, traps everywhere, I heard the council were tryng to put an end to it - some people never know when enough is enough. If everyone took enough for personal use there would be no problem and more than enough to go round.

best place is tayport depends on what area you are checking as i prefer the average size as they are perfect for bait.
as for begining of june :confused: i was out yesterday from boat and it is still patchy.

Hi

How does one tell if a crabs a peeler. My son and I regularly forage in the rockpools and it would make sense if I managed to bag a few of these creatures.

Incidentally, in the pools we've had butterfish, bullheads, crabs of all kinds, large shrimp and my son found a flattie about the size of a 1p piece :)

I've now weaned him onto a 5ft rod –*here's to the summer.

Would any crab do for bait –*why's a peeler the best?

Thanks in advance
