A lil guide on a crabbing method

Post by gohyuheng » Fri Jan 07, 2011 11:15 pm

This has been very successful for me at West coast so far, so i have decided to post it. Its very simple actually, i Just attach 2 sets of tambans hook to each other, forming a very long line of hooks. At the top of the rig and at the botttom there is a weight .Hook a small piece of prawn meat at every hook, and at the center hooks, hook whole prawns to attract the crabs there. When casting, try to spread out the hooks as much as possible. Every once in awhile, jerk the rod backwards. If you feel as if its a sangkut, REEL ARHHHH~!I have caught some mud crabs at low tide in west coast with this before , hope it will work out for you guys too ~

That's an interesting idea but it sounds like something you wouldn't want to risk using at rocky places. :lol: The good thing about this rig is that you're doing fishing and crabbing at the same time. Neat. :nod:
