    If things like cooked prawns work for rig and eles then I’m pretty sure any sort of crabs would work.

    Rip off the legs , peel off the shell , fold the remainer in half , so the underbelly protects the guts etc if that makes sense …..and bind it onto your hook like that ….

    Works a treat for both rig and ele

    Reading all the posts must have been boring in patches, especially when the discussion duplicates itself.

    When you’re not out fishing you’ve gotta have something to do in your spare time. Looking back at the latest catches threads from the last few years I can find out what species are likely to be around at what times of the year. Looking at getting back out fishing later this month maybe a trip to kaikoura or just up to the Pier, should be some kahawai showing up soon.
