Hi minyou123, welcome to HLF. If you're into crabbing, ilurbtambans is the guy to go to. He's crazy over crabbing. ;) Generally, any type of fish meat will do. It's the scent of the flesh that attracts the crabs, so go for those stinky fishy, especially those with its organs still intact. ::x:

just keep a look out for spots with mangrove trees, and take note of the surroundings, how low can the place get when it is low tide. and those places which are very ulu, so u can claim the spot for urself

talking about the right bait. buy any type of fish head ( preferably shark, or stingray). after tat add 2 tea spoon of vinegar, 1/4 bottle of tomato sauce n a smelly old shoe. after tat keep them in a plastic bag, n put it near ur neighbour door. 1mth later, when u c police coming suspecting got dead bodies, ur bait is ready for use. u put ur crab cage at kallang river, big fat crabs from sri kahan oso swim over. :p
