O.K. Jack;

Here's the most recent South Carolina Regulation updates as I can find them.



The South Carolina Department of Natural Resources's home/main web site is:   http://www.dnr.sc.gov/regulations.html


The South Carolina Department of Natural Resources's "Saltwater Fishing Regulations" web site section is:

  http://www.dnr.sc.gov/regs/pdf/saltfishing.pdf

The above sites are where you will find the following:

Nothing new, that I can see. Note that there is no limit on collapsible baskets -- the pyramids, topless traps, etc. The 2-pot limit applies to traps/pots that catch the crabs without you jerking on the string.

Bubba, do you know if it's legal to use a trotline on blue crabs in SC? Also do you have any recent prices for the same?
Thanks
