Hello, I haven't crabbed in years and didn't get out this year as I thought I would.
So I'm planning fo next year.
I was  wondering if a trot line is legal in NY?
Is a trot line feasable to use in the Hudson with a current?
How does the members here catch in the Hudson?
I striper fish out of Kingston..
Yea I'm bored !
Thanks Brian Smiley

Hey Brian, You missed a good year on the Hudson. They were like the candy (good and plenty) Grin. We crab out of germantown in the bays where the current isn't as strong but you still need 4' of chain on both ends of the trotline to keep it down. I can't find any regs on trotline use in the Hudson so i guess it's legal Huh I use the box traps with buoys usually in 6 to 12' of water Grin. We also go out of catskill and germantown for the shad and striper's. I agree it's gonna be a long winter Sad Sad Sad Sad

Hey Hay,
I'm glad you had a great year!! laugh
What do you use for bait?
I've been looking through these posts to see how to make a trot line.
I'm not clear about how to attach the bait to the line.
I saw Mike Rowe on Dirty Jobs on TV go out with a Maryland?? waterman.
They picked up the trot line and laid it on a boat trailer roller and used a dip
net to get the crabs. Is that how you do it?
Also it seems like it's 50 per person a day?

Do some searching on the site...........there is a special section on trot lines........search for "Snood" (the way to attach bait)  there is tons of info here.

If you still have trouble finding what you want re-post and I will send you stuff

Hey Brian. In the crab traps we found that fish works the best (sunfish, bluegill etc). In the trotline we use chicken necks attached by a slipknot. Masspi is right Shocked Grin just do a search for trotline or snoods and you'll be reading all day Grin Grin Grin

Happy New Year!!!
The more posts I read the more I'm chomping at the bit to get back on the water.
It's a beautiful early May morning here, hard to beleive it's the last day of 2006.
Lots of great info on this board.
Thanks

DO NOT, repeat DO NOT!!!!!!! lay any trot lines in the shadows............US AIR has decided to use the Hudson River as Emergency Runway 001. PLEASE be sure you line is run is full and constant sun light.

Call your New York Area Airports for expected landing even if the number is Zero, expect the unexpected.

Southwest, United, Continental, North West, American, Big Blue and Air Tran are expected to follow suit.

Call 1-800-Loyd's-London for water craft insurance  to cover falling aircraft and aircarft parts.

Tell them DP sent you!
