Don't get crabby

I think this little one is called the Common Shore or green crab.  They are exactly the color of the rocks & seaweed.  I was only able to see it when it moved.  Some people use these for bait.  Shore fishing can land you some plaice, mackerel, flounder, bass, pollack, turbot and cod.  They even catch sharks, skates and rays out here!  I'm trying to decide what kind of fishing pole to get; a salt water fly rod, or a medium fixed spool.  Probably won't be using these little crabs for bait though.  They're kinda cute.

  1. Hey! I remember that little guy. They don't really get a lot bigger than that. They're not eaten here - I think they're exported to the Continent (like Sea Urchins and other sea creatures)
