Trot lining for crabs 5 x 7 oil
At this time of year Leeds Creek is full of people trying to catch crabs. My painting shows a couple of guys "trot lining". They bait long lines with chicken pieces and run the lines along the creek. The crabs grab hold of the bait and as the line is pulled up, the crabs are netted. This can be a very affective method for catching crabs.
