Well thanks lads and lassies, and any others that might be offended by my  steriotypyical reply. I remember catching crabs in Cromer. So As I understand then the further north you go then the better the chance . It looks like it’s better when the water is slow? Is that correct? 

I take it that is why you can catch them better in Great Yarmouth, though confused a little as I understand the tidal flow is huge and swift. 


I didnt realise the term term for those with paddle/ oar skills was “catching a crab” if they missed a stroke. I think I will get Andrea and I to practice before we go.  So hope in no time we will be crab free and impress all by the clean cut of our blades as we glide along the broads. 

Thanks again for all you on this forum for your sage like advice, based on your own, experience,skills and knowledge.
