Has anyone ever tried making their own crab snares and if so, do you have any advice? I'm working on a bunch over the holidays. Seems like the stores only carry the crappy danielson ones or the green box ones. I find the snare portion on these to be way too stiff. Additionally, they are so large that and heavy that they make casting somewhat tedious and inaccurate. Thanks for any info.

also, do a search for one of mooks posts about crab. he makes a sweet looking one. i can't find that main thing he uses, so i stick to the store bought.

I'm getting pretty good at this search thing. Try this link crab snare 2
I'd love to get one if anybody gears up to make em. It'll probably take me a case of beer to figure it out, maybe more.

. nor I should of said both.
Some guys will wait till the crab tries and pulls the bait but many prefer the I can't wait any longer jerk and reel.
