    Dont know about down there but you should be able to get paddle crabs year round? In the wash on a surf beach would be my choice

    Worth a crack. Raw chicken frames ,necks or liver works best . (100 asians fishing off the brighton pier can't be all wrong )

    Use an old bike rim and zip tie some mesh over it. Put it behind the breakers with bait tied on and buoyed to surface. Paddle crabs get tangled in mesh. If eating said crabs, chuck into salted boiling water for 5 mins max, then into cold (chilled) H2O to stop further cooking. Rip back off, wash out guts and salivate as you slop your way though them. Crunch...crunch.. (Dammit; 'nuther filling gone!).

    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!

    paddlers are better than crayfish just harder to get the meat out.good luck with it plenty of bait in it while you are fishing might bring more fish around.

    VC growing up every Summer the whole family went to your neck of the woods and there were tons of Paddler crabs that would grab your toes at low tide round at Rabbit Island - along that coast would be where I'd take a look (probably all changed) since I was a cowboy!! Is the nudist colony still there? Plenty of bird watchers looking across the Estuary but I think their suits needed ironing....
