Reading one of the posts, someone stated that coastal waters is considered (Coastal = ocean, sound, salt water rivers etc.) and Inland is considered (Inland = Ponds, lakes fresh water rivers)
1. What would new river be considered?
2. I live in the New River area and I want to use my Crab pots (non collapsable) . Can I use these crab pots (1 per person) in the New river area?
Think that one crabpot has to be attached to your personal property, correct me if I am wrong. There is http://portal.ncdenr.org/web/mf/maps-to-view-and-print (or ) http://portal.ncdenr.org/web/mf/coastal-joint-inland-waters
Actually here is the exact link for your area http://portal.ncdenr.org/c/document_library/get_file?uuid=b4c6072a-e407-46ca-abf0-2051655a098e&groupId=38337
seems it's all coastal waters as far as the main body goes, BUT looks like it's covered as a "Military Danger Zone and or Restricted Areas"
