For fishing in a watercraft, rely on a 7 foot quick to added rapid pole with a reel loadeded with 30 to 45 pound test of mono-filament line. You could use the very same pole and also reel combo on the boat dock or jetty. If fishing on the coastline, rely on a 8 to 9 foot fast to extra fast pole. At any kind of price, rely on a fish finder rig with the appropriate sinker for the browse disorders.
Some people rely on a currently made poultry rig purchased a take on store. It is an angling rig where you can attach 2 hooks and a weight near the bottom. The crabs like this sort of rig so I suggest putting tiny drifts on the rig.
