I want to do some recreational crabbin around Wilmington, North Carolina. Is there a regulation of how many crab pots I can set without license?

Thanks a lot, Gutterboy

Hey I am in the wilmington area as well, did you ever figure out the rules?  I can't find anybody that knows for sure or the ones that think they do all say something different.

Thanks

I think you can tie two to the shore of waterfront property you own, otherwise you need a RCGL license that will allow you five.

http://www.ncfisheries.net/   >>>>That should help you, unless you crab inland waters then you'll need to look at NC Wildlife site. I believe I saw somewhere you're only allowed 1 pot to the pier, N) One crab pot may be used from private property or private pier, without a license - Reference 15A NCAC 3J.0302Other than that, you'll need a CRFL if using comm type crab pots up to five, must be identified with Hot Pink buoy's. Must not exceed 50 crabs per person and/or 100 crabs per vessel per day. As of July 2nd 2008 as I was politely informed and warned by Wildlife Officers, you'll need a fishing license to use hand lands for crabbing inland waters.
