im a general new crabber I have 4 crab traps left out of 10 because at the time I was learning how too drive the boat but now im still unexpended but with 50+ hours of boating. I was looking too buy a trotline because everyone with a trotline is catching a heck a lot more then I. but I was wondering if anyone knows of a store that sells trotline kits by Odenton Maryland or anywhere near Annapolis. Anglers have some sort of trotline kits but last time I was there they only had half of a kit and not full size.

Also what are the parts too a trotline I think I know them but I want too be 100% sure.

Thanks.

Find someone to go out with first, and see how they run theirs.  If you see one run up close, it will help you a ton.  After seeing it, it is fairly simple, and much cheaper to put your own together.  Good Luck.

Ok here goes, are you still interested in running a trot line - if so let me know and I will give you the BEST ADVICE I HAVE. My brother and I tried from sratch and had a nitemare - I will in all honesty steer you as straight as possible with what I have learned - just let me know if you are interested...................

Don't know what could have been so difficult. Making a trotline is really simple as long as you start with the right materials.


Pretty simple to set one up. But there are some for sale on the forum cheaper than you can buy the materials for. Real simple to make, learning how to run it is a different story. I agree with Hen Pot go out with someone and see how it's done. It'll make things a lot easier.

Fred's Sports in Waldorf has them. I saw them last weekend while I was buying a new pot. I did not see the price. They are complete with floats and all.

Making it is not a problem. Learning to run one is - I can even say you will always be learning to run one because just when you think you have it down, something will change. It's kinda like life, think you got it all down now, wait 1 day and try again.
