My daughter and I managed to catch 35 crabs in around 20 or 30 minutes from the jetty at Dale, Pembrokeshire.
We used a crab line and a drop net baited with bacon and sardines.
The drop net was very efficient catching 3-8 crabs every 2 to 3 minutes.
The crab line works, but the crabs easily fall off, when raising the bait, with the crabs hanging on. So it's best to place a net under it, as you kids pull up the bait. This catches any fallers!
We also caught a single whitebait.
