Default Crabs for bait?

What about crabs? I have a crab trap (not like a lobster trap, i put bait in it and lower into water, wait for crab/crabs to come in and then pull rope up, which closes sides). What if I took the crabs and hooked them up? I know that they might have to be small, not too big, And if I let it sink to the bottom, it will just bury itself or go into the rocks. So if I put a bobber/balloon or whatever to use to suspend the crab, would it work to catch stripers? (or blues or whatever bites)

P.S. This is daytime fishing, from shore of NH coast.
