New to crabbing in New Jersey. What are the regulations on using a comercial crab pot for personal use and also any tips on what crab traps to purchase or comercial crab pots. Also any idea for a good place to crab going on 55 south towards cape may. I know alot of questions at once but i figure why not ask the experts.

For a commercial crab pot you need a permit, it costs 2 dallers and you can get it at most bait shops. Any crab traps really do good if they are running well.  I tend to use differnt color traps (which does nothing because crabs are color blind) but i like to haha. im also not to familer with that area to much i crab more north Burlington, Ocean and Monmouth Counties in New Jersey.    I also have to 2 extra commercial pots if youd liketo have em your more then welcome

I've always used traps like this from shore.  Cheap and easy but you gotta get the main rope.

This made me remember something from when we were kids.  And of course there were crabs everywhere back then.  We used to get a Jimmy and tie a string to his swimmer then drop him in a gut.  Come back later and pull him in with a soft crab or shedder all bundled up.  Grin
