I had never been crabbing before and these kids taught me how, with a few simple tools: a string, a weight and a hot dog. The crabs grab hold of the hot dog and you just pull them up. It’s so cool and so much fun!
Just tie the string around a piece of hot dog and drop it in the water, the crabs run to it, grab on and you pull them up. Summer fun for hours. I wonder if the same thing works for crawdads?
Have You Ever Been Crabbing?
If you crabbed when you were a kid, or have taught your kids what is the best crabbing tip you’ve learned? Did you mainly catch and release (like in fishing) or were you catching for supper? I didn’t know there were crabbing tournaments on the shore. Being a land locked Nebraskan I don’t get the experience of all the festivals around the country.
