Buying and Constructing Personal Snow Crab Trabs
You do not have to be a commercial angler to put out what are essentially the same traps. Learn how from a pro.
This is a really cool video about buying and assembling Stone Crab traps (we have to assume they'll catch blue crabs too but would not bet on anything unless we've done it). Florida Saltwater Life on YouTube is managed by a commercial fisherman who is a private crabber like most of us (he has a box trap or two and puts wet baits down and waits for a while to see if they're filled with crabbies). Here he decides he's going to step up his crab skills a little buy buying the five legal traps he can put out without needing special permits. Just like you and me.
