crab lures

Post by wem21 » Sat Mar 13, 2021 6:03 pm

Hi,

I've always used cranka crabs when i want a crab presentation, but they're a bit too pricey for me to really throw into snags and stuff, so i was wondering if there are any cheaper alternatives ?

Cheers

Strike Pro Enticer Crabs work well.

Mind you I did design it.
They are Neutral bouyant, Scent infused and you fish them the same as the Cranka.

Hi Mate,

We do a range of Jigheads for the Crabs and they are Size 4
They are a shorter Shank also so they fit the Crab perfectly.

I used this before and definitely attractive to bream. But often I got tapped and often no hookup, only to find it back with missing claw(s) and/or legs.

Bream seems love to disarm crabs before commit to eat the whole thing. And usually after they get a taste of the plastic piece, they dont come back for second.

Any tips to convert 'disarm bites' to a hookup?

Hi Sebb,
Run a small section of Fluorocarbon from the eye of the Jighead with a single stinger hook in each claw does the trick!

with the marukyu crabs, can you leave them out of the juice? or will they dry up like the gulps?

They'll dry up like the gulps.
The resealable pack isn't that great, so I usually put the opened pack in a ziplock bag.
Or put them in gulps' tub thing.
