seing crabs in their natural envirment - they walk sideway..id rif them the same from one side...

jig head..somthing short shank with a fairly big gape...

liek a Gamakatsu 211 round head, depending on the water depth id PROBLY go with a 1/22 - 1/16 so it digs up a bit of the bottom when you twitch them along...id keep them on or very close to the bottom all the time...

ALT if your fishing structure with a lot of growth, you willfind crabs in the grows..so fish them on a mucj lighter head say the 1/32 in the 211 and drop it along side nd let it drop with a lot of very light twitches so get the legs moving as it drops...

good for stick baits but IMO to long in the shank to be unnoticed...

This is the way i set up a crab, the fish will usually hit from behind or the side
either use a unweighted as pictured or a light weighted head up to you...

I know its not a peeler but you get the idea
