Thank you all for participating in my guess the candy corns on the wreath contest. Alot of you were close to the actual amount! The one that guessed the closest and wins their very own candy corn wreath is Pam Saves. Please email me your contact information Pam and I will mail your wreath. :)
I have been working hard on my Halloween costume I will post more later on my Queen of Hearts costume. I'm really excited about it since I'm making most of the costume this year. Have a great day all!
Buy some turkey or chicken parts from your local grocery store. Necks, wings and legs work best, but crabs aren't all that picky about their bait. Whatever's cheap and available will do fine.
Tie the bait to a long strand of string. Wade out into the water and cast your line. If the bait doesn't seem to sink, reel it back in and tie a small fishing weight to the string's end. This will keep the bait down where the crabs can find it.
Wait patiently for a crab to grab onto your line. If you've picked a good spot, you'll hopefully get a nibble or two in the first half-hour. If not, pull in your line and cast it out somewhere else on the beach.
Maintain tension in the string as you pull the crab in, but don't pull too hard. Keep a dip net handy for catching the crab when it arrives.
