Went out yesterday crabbing for the first time from my kayak. I picked up a bunch of tips here that helped make it a success things like:
Open topped traps
Snoods
Chicken necks
Pool noodle and PVC floats
Gloves instead of tongs

Interesting experience.  Took a while to get the hang of it, but managed to get 37 keepers. All in all a great day!

Thanks.  It was a lot of fun and hard work, but very satisfying.

I've had that kayak a little over a year and love, love, love it.  I bought it for fishing and it's been the most versatile thing I have bought.  I've had it in the open ocean and back bays of Brigantine fishing for flounder and stripers, catching alligator blues in Jamica Bay, NY, an overnight float down the Delaware packing all my camping gear and fishing for smallies, fishing local reservoirs for large mouth and toting my 4 year old in the back while towing my 9 year old in a smaller kayak.  Now I can add crabbing to the list and in a few weeks with the aid of a sail kit, I'll venture out into the Pamlico Sound on the hunt for speckled trout.

Enjoyed looking at that kayak and how well you have it organized.  Been thinking about getting a kayak for tough to get places,  thanks for that great report and pic of your machine.

Very cool. Nice to see a fellow kayaker catching the crabs. Fun isn't it? I love crabbing this way.
