By: Joseph Simonds on April 22, 2020
Whoever said you needed crab traps to catch a bunch of blue crabs?
Regardless if you’ve already caught blue crabs before or if you’re looking for a fun, new on-the-water activity during these wild times, you’ll love this new video.
We’ve got Salt Strong Fishing Coach Capt. Peter Deeks and his closest friends and family showing you how to go out and catch blue crabs without crab traps.
This is a fun way to spend time on the water with friends and family (especially kids), and it’s a great alternative for bringing home dinner now that many species are currently catch-and-release only.
Just wait until you see the feast at the end of the video!
Check out the video below to learn how to catch loads of blue crabs on the flats.

If you want to catch blue crabs, you could obviously set out crab traps and come back a few days later to see if you got anything.
But if you want to make it a more fun and adventurous experience, go out on the flats and search for them!
Find an area with clean water and use the trolling motor to slowly go around and hunt for them.
You can also bait them with things like chicken necks to bring them to you.
But be careful, their claws are pretty strong and they can get you!
Finally, the best news is that you can save a few to target big bull redfish (while you feast on the rest of the crabs)!
