So we've all had that sinking feeling when we try to reel in our lines and we are snagged and no matter how hard we try, we end up losing the gear.. it was only today when i was fishing at Chesil i realised the real damage it can cause, when i brought in a snagged line with five spider crabs entangled. i was just wondering if anyone else had reeled in anything like this before and how common it really is?

All these little fellas where freed and released back

I suppose those Spider crabs crawl along the seabed getting tangled up in all that lost line. I hope you dealt with them in the correct way.
