Really Good Crabs Today

Recommended Posts

My wife, my Daughter, and I had the best large crabs today. They were really good. I took this picture of a Eastern Shore crabber working out from were I was white perch fishing. This is how our local MD. crabbers do it. Do you know what the equipment he is using to catch the crabs is called? In FL. they only use crab pots. What is it?

It's hard to tell by the picture, but looks like he's holding a dip net and possibly a live well of sort in the water off the back of the boat? Whatever it is, the plate full of crabs says he/they get the job done LOL

You got it sunbked. It is called trotline. It is the way the local commercial crabbers do it. Have been doing it for ever. The big time commercial crabbers put out hundreds of pots all over the bay. They only use pots in FL. Wonder why? Probably is easier to use pots in FL. because they don't need as many crabs as they do in MD. Don't know! If any one knows why they don't use trotlines in FL. please let us know. Might be against the law.
