I got my boat decal today and I was looking through the booklet they give you. In the crabbing section it states Time Restrictions- NONE. WHats going on here is it a mistake? or did they change it?

NM in another section it gives the times. If this was my first season in this state you could be really confused with this

I've been here for 63+ years and I'm STILL confused. Remember, the people writing the laws are all lawyers, as long as it's confusing and ambiguous they stay in business!

Are you looking at Coastal bays or Chesapeake Bay?  Coastal Bays has no time restrictions, Chesapeake Bay and tributaries has restrictions.

  I wish that there were no time limits so I could crab at night before it gets to 90 degrees.  But where I crab if you dont crab within the legal time limits you will caught and ticketed and 2 tickets inside 1 year of crabbing before legal time you will be facing jail time.  Sad

years ago, I remember running a trotline at night with a coleman lantern rig set up for dipping. also would pick up crabs swimming on the surface.
the Wye would have a lot of boats with coleman lanterns

the water was really calm and the air cool on the water

I remember I made a aluminum sheild for my latern so the light would go out the front and not blind you. it was mounted on a stick and hung away from the boat.

always seemed calmer at night, don't remember it ever rough

it was neat - you can stand at wye ramp and see all these boat moving in the dark

lantern in the bow for skimming surface crabs - you had to be there at the right time of the year ( believe it had to be a hot august night )

lantern toward the stern for running a trotline

we would do both

 Wink

it'll get worse as politicians keep passing more and more laws - at some point don't we have enough laws

The crabs don't always bite in the dark, especially later in the season. Wink

Recreational crabbers can handline 24/7 days a week.  I dont do it but my son does each weekend when we go and usually gets a half to 3/4 of a bushel.  The downside to that is he wants to sleep when 5-6 am. comes around.  I dont mind when we are running the trotline because I can do that by myself but yanking traps for 6 or 7 hours is wearing the old man out.

  And that is exactly what he does, drink beer and handline!  So come morning I have a drunk handliner on my hands thinking he is the captain. Roll Eyes Roll Eyes
