I just about grew up on Jones Beach L. I . I used to
Love walking down the beach finding Crab Claws or even whole Crabs washed up on the Beach. So I figured what Hell. Let me see what I can come with to copy one . I realize it's a little too blue but I tied it as collectable. And the olive was a little dark.
Ok this for you Permit and Bonefish guys . OF Course I Made A Fishable Version ?!!! L. O. L.
Check it out.

I love those.  Great looking realistic ... and very fishy looking fishable version.

Thanks again my friend. A lot of pep's ask me if I had a fishable version to the point where I had to tweak the realistic. Throw them in some clear water on a light sand bottom and the Madabou just sits there wiggling on it's own. Boneheads love em .
