Hello I have a Maryland Sport fishing license with complimentary Crabbing license. I know I can fish in VA via Chesapeak and tributaries but can I use my crabbing license too or will I need to get a separate crabbing license?
thanks a lot

Unless things have changed since last year, VA and MD have reciprocity for both rec fishing and crabbing.

As it stands today, and things could change in the next few weeks, you do not need a license in VA to crab with collapsable traps, handlines or 2 commercial pots per person.  You do need a VA license to trot line.  You can get a 5 pot Rec license also but I am sure that one is going to change.  There has been a long, on going debate, if VA conciders collapsable traps the same as pots.  Some say yes, some say no.  It is unclear in the law.  The law says, each person can have 2 traps.  It is really unclear if traps mean pots or collapsable traps too.

Even VMRC officer's are confused.  Recently one told me I could have 5 pots with my Rec 5 pot license, plus 2 per family member.  When I read the Reg's it seems to clearly say that a rec can not have more than 5 traps total, in the water at any one time.. Confused? Me 2.
