I've tried the bucket method for crab before. Only problem I had with it was that the sand fills up the bucket if the wind blows strong. Other ways I know of getting them is by putting a iron or steel rod wedged in the sand where the shalow water is round ankle depth. Then tie a long piece of nylon with sardine to the end. Sinker should be added to keep bait at bottom. Then one goes and sits down and return a few minutes later (scoop net may be used) and as you approach the stock you have a good idea where the bait would be and will be easy to spot the crabs feasting on the sardine. They excellent bait for the bigger steenbras.
