The CrabHawk was designed with the sport fisherman in mind. You'll know when crabs are eating the bait (preferably chicken over fish), because the bait-pole is attached directly to your line. So, when the crab eat or attempt to take the bait, the bait-pole moves, causing action on your rod tip - just like fishing! The CrabHawk automatically opens when it's thrown or when it hits the bottom and it always lands right side up. Nothing like plunking or waiting for time to go by to check the traps/rings to see if you have anything....... you’ll know right away!
One of the greatest things about the CrabHawk is that it's "crab friendly." Unlike snares that rip the legs off when you pull to quick or to hard. It doesn't hurt the crab and you can release the unwanted crab without ever touching them.
The CrabHawk is also perfect for RV’s and boats as it is small (18" X 12") and lightweight. It is easily stored away with much less space used than crab rings, pots and their coils of rope. The CrabHawk is very sanitary and when rinsed after use retains no foul odors.
