Crab Fishing

Crab Fishing

To catch a bucket full of Crabs in Youghal you need a bucket, a piece of line or string, a weight and some off-cuts of meat (which any butcher will give to you if you ask) - that's it. Then go to the quayside and drop your line in and wait a minute before you pull it up. The crabs will be clinging on until you drop them in the bucket. Set them free afterwards.

"Crabbing is one of those virtually free activities that generates so much fun and excitement you'll wonder why you never did it before. Its great fun for kids of all ages - up to 90!" - Martin
