Crab Fishing

Over the weekend we had a little break in Scarborough and took the opportunity to do a little crab fishing. It's great to see the little blighters in their natural environment and watching them catch food (or bait).
When you crab fish you don't use hooks but a bag on a line filled with bait. You but the bags in the water and the crabs scurry from quite a distance on the scent of the food.
Crabs must have a very good scent of smell.
They then hang onto the bag whilst you pull them out of the water on the line.

All the crabs were returned unharmed into the sea.
It's interesting peaceful and good fun.
