Anyone have a favorite technique for luring out creatures. I personally don't like the ideal of crushing sea urchins. If I kill something I have to eat it. I was raised by hunters. I have heard that the raw sex organs of sea urchins. Are very tasty, but I would rather take a spine in the ass.

In local mountain diving, I plop a couple of shelled hard boiled eggs in a zip lock bag. I tried it, because egg yolks are used to raise fresh water Discus fry. A egg fits nicely in the palm of the hand. After educating the fish, I can get swarms of mountain white fish around me. The fry hang around my head, the fingerlings swarm around my body and the big fish are at my feet. To catch the bigger pieces as they sink.
