Crab Crank Bait

This is a concept bait I have been working on. It is made to resemble a blue crab and I plan to use it to catch red fish. This is a prototype. Has anyone attempted anything like this? Let me know what you think.

I don't know a lot about saltwater fishing, but it looks good to me. I do have a question though. Does your crab lure work like a rural mailbox in that when the flag is raised "you've got mail"? Sorry. Couldn't help myself.

Would like to know more about the kind of action this bait would have in the water. Looks like a great concept!

Curt, the legs are metal bead material like a ceiling fan chain. The weight causes the bait to float on its belly like a crab. I tied onto the point on the side if the bait so it would swim like a crab. The bait dives to about 12" when retrieved but floats to the surface very quickly when I stop reeling.
