Was thinking of running 1 150' trot line at the Shrewsbury river. Am I correct to assume it is legal there? I've never ran one in NJ and I know some places have restrictions.  I  don't want to purchase a license and not be able to use it. The only other place i crab in NJ is Dividing creek and that is off limits to trot lines.

Thanks in advance

Another thing to note is that in NJ you can not use floating line on the anchors, which is often recomended in the how to make a trot line instructions found on the web.

i LOOKED UP THE REGS AND THIS IS WHAT IT STATED. I COPIED AND PASTED

PLACEMENT AND MARKING OF POT AND TROT LINES
Each crab pot shall be clearly and visibly marked with a buoy, stake or permanent identification tag bearing the
license number of the owner. All crab pot buoys shall be marked with fluorescent or reflective paint, tape or
other reflective material or reflectors. Floating line shall not be used on any crab pot or crab pot buoys. Each
trotline shall be marked at both ends with a clearly visible stake or buoy.

AND ANOTHER SECTION STATED

REMINDER TO RECREATIONAL USERS OF COMMERCIAL-STYLE CRAB POTS
If you are setting your pots in open water and marking them with floats, the tide can easily move your pots.
Please try to weight your pots to reduce movement if you plan to leave them unattended. Bricks placed in the
bottom of the pots are an easy way to decrease movement.
Please be aware that it is illegal to use floating line (such as polypropylene) on any crab pot or crab pot buoy.
Use of floating line increases the probability of another boater getting your crab pot line entangled in his or her
propeller.


IT DOESN'T SPECIFY NO FLOAT LINE ON TROT LINE.  THE LINES ON TROT LINES ARE SOMEWHAT TIGHT SO FLOATING OR NON FLOATING WOULDN'T MAKE A DIFFERENCE SINCE OUTGOING TIDE WOULD NOT PRODUCE SLACK IN THE LINE AS I WOULD HAVE TO PULL ANCHOR TIGHTER FOR LINE TO BE RUN WITHOUT PROBLEMS.

HERE IS TH WEB ADDRESS.    http://www.state.nj.us/dep/fgw/pdf/non-comm_crabpot_regs.pdf

TO BE ON THE SAFE SIDE, I THINK I'LL USE NON FLOATING AS THE REGS ARE KIND OF AMBIGUOUS IN THEIR WORDING.

ALSO IT LOOKS LIKE THE SHREWSBURY IS OK FOR TROT LINE.

The regulations are clear IMO. If you run a trotline in NJ, you need a license. The Shrewsbury is not a prohibited waterway. You cannot use floating line only on crabpots, the reason probably being that crabpots are left unattended while trotlines are attended. Have a good time!
