I know you are allowed to run 1200 feet of trotline with a Maryland crabbing licenses. If you have 2 people on a boat, both have a crabbing license, can you run 2 1200 feet trotlines?

Thanks

Nope. There are maximum gear limits per boat - 1200' of trotline, 30 traps:

Let's see...

1200 x 1' = 1200' (you're too funny Jack Grin)
2 x 600' = 1200' (you're legal, MdBd)

These reg's apply to the Chesapeake Bay.

If you're in the Potomac, these reg's may apply:

If you're along the Atlantic coast of MD these reg's will apply:

I assumed you meant the Maryland portion of the CB?
