Default Catching fiddler crabs?

Does anybody know how to make a fiddler crab trap? And if so when, where and how would I set the trap. I really want to learn how to catch them so I don't have to buy bait for sheepies.

Find a shoreline that's got lots of fiddler burrows. Dig a hole just above the waterline and bury a bucket in it. Basically makes a pit-fall trap.

Place some meat, earth worms, hot dogs, etc., into that bucket, coffee can, etc., to catch more fiddlers...

I caught some at a bluegrass festival once.
Seriously, have had the best luck having the kids dig em up.
