Have you ever caught crabs?
We went to a pier off the Atlantic, and everyone was fishing. Seems like I caught bronchitis from hubby, and not feeling well, but I did not want to miss all the action yesterday. I also now know how Farmlady felt about walking out on a long long long pier three feet wide maybe...because I got vertigo and felt dizzy, so hubby had to come out and walk me the rest of the way out.
Once I sat down off the pier I was a little bored and hooked up a line with some fish and a large weight and dropped it straight down.
I began pulling in Blue Crabs. They are mean and will not hesitate to pinch you, and hold on! Here is one I had to slap it down with my rod to keep it from running off the pier, and it was a funny sight. The minute he hit the ground, as I grabbed my camera, he stuck that piece of fish in his mouth. He decided meal time was right there and then!
They are good eating...
