In response to Crabby Crabber, I think you are required to have a valid saltwater fishing license to take crab by ringnets, handlines, or dip nets recreationaly. I checked the DMR site and non-resident 3 day runs about $18.29. I was checked weekend before last while handlining only. Friendly officer and he offered good information about the area.
could ya post a link so we can put it in the gulf coast regs board?
