While fishing today I counted 37 blue crabs crawling around the flats I was fishing, by far the most I’ve noticed in my fishing area. I did not see any redfish crushing the crabs but I can only assume once we get a little deeper into our fall season that the crabs will soon become a staple in the redfish diet. With that being said what Crab lures would y’all recommend?

86 the existing hook.. use a circle it becomes very weedless, if that does not work 86 hook & weight, and use an 1/8oz weedless jig head.

Anyone know if there are any weedless options? For those of us fishing grass flats? Or a way to rig a DOA weedless?
Get a piece of wire and bend it into a wire guard, push the ends into the crab and the bend at the hook point. It works on the shrimp but should work on crab. Learned this from Mark Nichols himself. There might be a video on their website.
