It would seem that crab on the westcoast aren't terribly smart. You can literally catch them with almost anything. I even have an article clipped out of the paper featuring a photo of my dad and his boyhood friends, crabbing on the shores of White Rock beach, with nothing more than tangles of fishing line, a small piece of bacon inside the tangle and a stick. Yes, you can catch crab that way with surprisingly good results.
