Looking for personal experiences preferences on what you've all seen work for catching blue crabs on the gulf coast?

So far I've tried chicken necks and cigar minnows.

Chicken and fish catch about the same for me. I use chicken leg quarters in my traps. When hand lining I use necks or cut up quarters.

Fresh chicken is what I use for bait.

I use fish carcasses after filleting and/or fish I don't want to eat, like croakers, ladyfish, or blues. Crabs aren't very picky.
