IMO , rig feed more in the dirty water …rough sea ususally means dirty …calm and dirty is just as productive ….and way easier to fish

Probably the best tip over and above what the others have mentioned , is to use the biggest crabs youve got at the best time of night/morning available to you if fishing is slow …..unless you have a good supply of big crabs …..
Half a large crab will outfish a whole small crab hands down ……..remove the legs and shell of the half large crab , and bind it on with cotton , a 2nd hook sliding down the trace into the other side of the bait will help ….this bait will ooze oils and scent that any right minded rig will seek out long long before he stumbles across a whole small crab laying dead and odourless on the bottom
