The other day I was reading the Reel Report (Fishing column in the Galveston Daily News) about how Hot the crabbing was around San Leon. The writer goes on to say what folks use for crab bait and as usual, chicken necks were the go to bait. He also mentioned that Fish Carcasses were used too..i.e. fish heads etc. but here is the Need to Know thing. It is against the law to use GAME FISH remnants of any kind for bait. I emailed the writer this in hopes he would add this bit of info in his next day column so folks would be aware but he never did.
