Just some advice. If there are so many crabs in that dam try using a Brush hog and try and match the color as close as possible to the actual crab.

Thanks Johan

Will Try that this weekend apparently there are or were some realy big bass in that damn but they have always been difficult to catch on lure

The residents do however take them on earthworms and tail hooked goldfish

Also going to try another spot close to my home this weekend
