I have been crabbing in OC for the last 2 years since we bought a place there. I use traps.

I have pots that I drop in DE because you can have 2 per license.  The areas are limited in Assawoman because of the way the state line runs. 

I read about people dropping pots in MD in Assawoman.  Can you do that as a rec crabber?  If so how many?

Thanks for the help.  The non-Chesapeake rules are confusing.

Thanks
Joe
