   I've used the 1/2 height Maryland style pots before, especially in shallower water where my full height traps were getting stolen everytime I turned my back. They don't have the upper crab hotel for their overnight stays and are just 24" long by 18" deep and about 10" high. My question is: do they count as a commercial trap too? I don't leave them overnight here in Monmouth county, and basically check them every hour or two when I'm crabbing. I like to use hand lines too but these are convenient in spots that aren't hand line friendly.

 hi Trumph,  any trap that doesn't have doors that open is considered a commercial trap. i have the same traps.  you need to get a rec commercial license. only 2 bucks and is good for 2 traps. you can buy the license on line. just go to the fish and game website to get.  good luck

 Found a site that stated any trap that can catch crabs by itself, like with funnels, needs a pot license. Oh well, I get one all the time anyway just wanted to use more traps. Two isn't very many for a day crabber who doesn't leave them in the water overnight.
 I didn't see a size restriction though. Maybe I should make a couple of 4'x4'x8" or larger traps with two or three entrance funnels on each side. " But officer, I only have two pots!!"

I use the same traps and made a second holding level with chicken wire.
