Man what a fight but I got it on the boat! Thanks Captain David Charbonnet
We were fishing the drop off from 3’-30’ in the Rigolets on a falling tide. We had 65# braid, 3-4 oz egg weight, to a 200# swivel (Palomar Knot), to 60# Suffix mono to an Eagle Claw Circle Sea 9/0 red, to a whole crab with back peeled off and legs cut at the knuckles.
Rigged so the crab doesn’t spin too bad. And then cast to the deeper water and let the tide “roll” or “bounce” it back along the drop off.
