How To Catch Your Own Blue And Pass Crabs For Bait

Blue Crabs and Pass Crabs can be expensive at tackle shops. They can range from 2 to 3 dollars a piece. There are 2 methods I like to use when it comes to catching a pass crab or a blue crab. 

Best Way To Catch Blue Crabs For Bait

The method I like use to catch blue crabs is by using a fish carcass. I set up a Crab Throw Line or you can use a section of monofilament fishing line with a sinker to hold the fish carcass down and usually wait about 10-20 minutes. I then slowly pull the line and if there is a crab attached I come under with a net and net it. 

Best Way To Catch Pass Crabs For Bait

Catching Pass Crabs, I like to go to a Bridge usually during the new or full moon because that is when the tide and current is stronger. The crabs will flush out of the Bay and I like to face the current and wait for the crabs to come to me. Then I get a dip net and net them and get as many as needed. 

This time of year Blue Crabs and Pass Crabs work really good for Tarpon under a float drifting with the current on the beach or channel. Also these Crabs work good for Blackdrum, Redfish, and Snook.
