VERY OT (haha might be too off topic for help) We are going on vacation soon and I want to take my kids crabbing. QUESTION - what is the best type of bait to use. I did a online search and most people say chicken BUT there were some really out there suggestions also. Thought I might ask in hopes that somene has a TNT suggestion before I just go with chicken! Thanks!

Chicken necks on a big hook. Those babies just come out of every nook and cranny for that. We went crabbing when we just had two little guys and this was a super easy way to do it. where are you going?

Question for you about using the hooks...I alwasy grew up using a small little crab trap. Do the crabs stay on the line when you pull them up?

Muscles work too, and you can find them in the same general area. Smash the shells and put them in the trap. have fun!

yep chicken necks, backs, leave them outside to age ( crabs love the perfume) we used crab nets. have fun, bring a 5 gallon bucket and a lid, punch some small holes in top and and you got a seat.
