Going to put out a trap for some crabs!! Tired of paying for them... Where should I be putting the trap and with what bait works best?? Thanks
Hi. The best bait (which I have had the best luck with) is turkey/chicken necks. You can buy them in a pack in the grocery store. They are located in the same area as the raw chicken breasts, turkey stuff. If you don't see it, ask. They are pretty cheap. I would never buy crabs as bait since I can get them right in our back yard. The local bait shop charges $2 per crab. I use to have a trap (need to buy a new one) that I would just lower into the bottom of the canal (tied with rope to the piling) & check every couple of hours to see how many crabs I caught. Sometimes I have even got pin fish in there too. Good luck!
