Tips For Catching and Keeping Sand Crabs
1. You will find sand crabs under piers and along the open beach in clusters called beds. Look for rippled water as in the picture above and this is where you'll find crabs.
2. Keep crabs in a plastic container with a moist piece of kelp over them. They need to keep cool and wet.
3. Look to use crabs whose shell is about the hardness of a soda can--slightly pliable.
4. Use crabs that are the average size of the ones you are finding at the beach. If most are the size of a dime, then that's what the surf fish are feeding upon.
5. Sand crabs will live at home for about three days. Keep them in a dry plastic container. Do not refrigerate them or keep them in water. Place a moist towel over the container to keep them cool and wet. Disturb them as little as possible. Try to keep them in a 55-70 degree temperature range.
