I like crabs, do you?
OK, living on the coast can cause you to learn to like a lot of different types of “sea animals”.
Going crabbing with the children is so much fun. How does one go about “crabbing”?
Well, professionals use crab traps. But those of us non-professionals use chicken necks and string or nets.
What is necessary to go on a crabbing adventure with the children?
1) chicken necks
4) net to scoop them up
Tie a long string around the chicken neck and throw into the water. Oh, BTW, you do not absolutely have to have salt water, but brackish water will do tool.
When a crab starts to nibble on the chicken neck, you start pulling on the string gently. You don’t want to pull too quicklybecause the crab may turn loose. When you get the crab close enough that you can scoop it up, do so. Put the crab in the bucket that has water in it. Without water, the crabs will die before you can get them home.
