Grab Life By The Claws

Coastal Georgia and South Carolina

Blue Crab fishing is a coastal culture that has provided food for many generations.

Place a piece of chicken in your basket and lower it into the water. Let it sit in the water and have fun fishing while the crabs find their way to the bait.

They also grab on to the bait on your fishing pole.

Be careful not to get your fingers pinched-ouch 🙂

They also wash up onto the beach with the tide.

A fresh catch must be measured and meet the size requirement for the keeping.

If it does not clear the minimum size, return to the water and let it swim away.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you are enjoying the sites of Coastal Georgia and South Carolina.
