Anyone know of a good Fiddler source that isn't across the country? I know I am on the coast so they should be available somewhere close, right?

If you live on the coast you should find a place on the beach that isn't protected by law and collect your octopus food there. When I was in La Jolla there were crabs and snails everywhere. Just find a place that isn't gross, polluted.

I do have to admit, I am too lazy to go down the beach and would rather pay:smile: I guess I will try and find a bait and tackle or something where they are cheap.

You can get a permit from the Department of Fish and Game to collect crabs. If you don't have a permit, you could face a hefty fine :shock:.
Do you mind pointing me in the right direction for this permit? :)

Thanks.

:cuttlehi: epicfish,

the fish and wild life service website for your state would probably be the best place to start
