The Crab-Slaughter-Crane can be caught from the shoreline near the Morkul Plain wayshrine. Atorag, a fisher who can be found nearby, will tell you the background of the Crab-Slaughter-Crane and gives some advice on how to catch it:

"I saw it when the sun was setting, so I'd say you'd want to fish for it at night. And with a fish that big, you'd want a couple friends helping out. How else would you manage to reel it in?"

Although she suggests bringing friends, it's not a requirement. The primary benefit of fishing in a group is that it slightly improves your chances of catching a rare fish. Additonally, it doesn't seem like fishing for it at night is a requirement.
