Sea Fishing For Bass With Fresh Peeler Crab

For this latest episode we took the camera back to the sands of North Norfolk with the hope of catching a few spring species on fresh Peeler Crab. At this time of year Live/Fresh Peeler Crab can be a superb bait and there's very few fish that swim in the sea's around the UK that won't eat it! Now don't get me wrong using Peeler Crab doesn't entitle you to a licence to catch fish, but on the right tide and in the right conditions, it can be deadly.

Armed with a bucket of them and with conditions spot on we were very confident of a few fish, arriving at the beach an hour before high water the plan was to fish the remaning hour of the ebb and then three to four hours of the flood.


With a decent bit of surf running and a big tide things looked good, but did we catch...? Watch the video below to find out!
