It would depend on your perception of big , small etc …..the tiny ones Id throw back , in saying that , early in the season they are fine whole for rig …….but I prefer to target ele’s

the big ones I cut in half , the medium I use whole

When chasing ele’s , and just as deadly on rig , rip off the legs , rip off the back shell , and fold the middle size ones in half on each other , using the underbelly to cover the meat if the crabs have been frozen ……..bind it on nice and tight

I like to use a keeper hook , sliding on the line which is inserted thru the bound bait giving better chance of a hookup
