As above , feed the hook thru the underbelly and out again …fold it over a little on itself to shelter the guts etc ….use whole crab if small , otherwise half

I rip all the legs off normally , unless targeting rig alone ……….without the legs , the bait is deadly on ele’s and just as effective on rig …casts better without legs too which will help at Spencers

If your lonelining etc , leave the legs ….and try paua meat for the ele’s

I found the ele’s somewhat timid when long lining , would advise targeting rig on one set , ele’s on the next , or vice versa ….could never imagine an ele chasing around a bait being towed around by a rig
