Default Crabbing: Cajun style

Vietnamese woman crabbing in the back waters at high tide. Bolivar Peninsula. Late afternoon while waiting for sunset shot of the lighthouse.

I moved to Slidell La. in the early 70's and we crabbed with the net style traps and caught dozens of blue crabs.... but the population has decreased recently, I wonder how she did with this method? My sister had a place at Crystal beach a while back, loved the peninsula!
Nice shot.

Nice shot.
She already had half a bucket when I took this. You tie a chicken neck (traditional, otherwise whatever meat or fish you have handy) to a piece of twine, toss it out a ways, and very slowly wind it back in. If you feel a crab tug it stop and let hm get a nibble then continue to bring him in close enough to use the little handnet on a pole. Quite effective. Damn Blues are almost $5 apiece now.
