Baiting a crab trap
How to Properly Bait a Crab Trap or Pot
Here is one way you can avoid being a stupid crabber:
- Use a bait box or tie your bait securely inside of the center of your crab trap. Make sure you don’t use so much bait that there just isn’t any room for the crabs to enter the trap.
Baiting a Crab Trap Properly Requires these Four Basics
- Use a good, fatty cut of meat. Chicken necks and salmon heads work great.
- Use fresh bait.
- Use a lot of bait. The more bait you use the more crab it attracts. But don’t over do it. You want the crabs to easily find their way into your trap.
Secure you bait inside the center of your trap.
