This handy crab fishing line includes approximately 12m of nylon line, a plastic line holder, balance weight and crab net.

* 12m nylon line
* Plastic line holder
* Balance Weight
* Crab net

Tips For Happy Crabbing...

* Find a suitable spot to sit on the harbour wall and simply tie your tempting treat to the end of the line. Crabs love bacon (and the rind best), tinned sardines or any old fish head you may have lying about.

* Drop your line in the water and wait patiently. The Shore Crab needs a little coaxing...about 5 minutes should do it.

* Raise your line, it should feel a little heavier, and observe. Clustered to your now half eaten bait, there should be a few happy crabs munching away.

* If you want to keep your crabs in a bucket for a while to look at, make sure you only put a few in at a time as they don’t like crowds and can become quite tetchy.

* Make sure you place your bucket in the shade, crabs are not accustomed to bright sunlight and don’t carry factor 25.

* After you’ve observed their quirky antics, carefully place them back into the water. They are not edible so please don’t try them on the barbeque, let them go back home to their families.

Interesting Crab Fact...

The Shore Crab grows to about 3 inches and is an opportunist scavenger. Tolerant to fresh water, it can consequently be found high up in river estuaries. It usually feeds on molluscs but also loves any dead matter on the shore, that’s why bacon is a real treat! After mating, Shore Crabs produce nearly 200,000 eggs which the female carries on her legs until they hatch.
