Crab bait: Crabs are notoriously greedy and have a super sense of smell, so the smellier the bait the better.

We use about half a rasher of raw smoked bacon on each line. You can keep using until either it drops off or a crafty crab snatches it. You can also use ham, chicken fish, and not even the good bits – crabs love fish heads and fat! You can buy “special” crab bait but bacon works just as well.
Can you use hot dogs for crab bait?
Hot Dogs-Hot Dogs are not commonly used due to the fact that they are very soft and crabs can easily tear them apart and eat them.

Like I said before, crabs love fish. Fish is a very oily meat, which makes it scent spread like wildfire through the water. This is what attracts crabs to your trap. Salmon, sardines, and tuna do very well in any trap. I recommend filleting any fish you put in the trap to help its smell spread.
What kind of bait do crabs eat?
It’s simply a fish oil solution that REALLY makes your bait smell… crabs love it! Crabs will eat any type of meat, that includes a chicken’s liver and neck.
