When I felt the taps, I tightened my drag and quickly set my hook straight into the crab and reeled him right in. Needless to say, I'm eating crab tonight.

Catch and release so one day I can catch them again when they are fully grown.

Accidentally snagged a Sea Robin while reeling in my line today. Hooked him in the side so technically I didn't get skunked haha! He was injured beyond survival ...more so I used him as bait. Crabs cleaned me out all day, but non the less it was a beautiful day on the beach.
