Where did you read that?     There is no mention of any kind of delay on the Delware Fish and Game website.

Well, it only took me three months to get around to this, but it still looks like you need to register.

"Who must obtain a F.I.N. number?
All residents and non-residents
who are age 16 or older (including
7-day non-resident licensed
anglers) wishing to recreationally
fish in Delaware waters. This
includes even those anglers not
required to obtain a general fishing
license
, such as residents 65 or
older, those fishing from a vessel
licensed for fishing

A buddy of mine is a DNR officer and they think it is the forerunner to a federal fishing license. We'll see I am running out of room to put stickers on the side of my boat though.

Thats kinda what everyone is saying here too.  I need to do some reading.  Didn't know folks that went fishing on charter boats will need a FIN...  Angry

delaware is doing this to avoid a federal fishing license and to increase their share of the federal money collected by the tax on fishing gear, before is was based on fresh water license numbers now they can count every one  party boaters dont need a fin number.

Everyone who fishes, even for a day, in the state of Delaware needs to have a license along with the FIN.

For crab traps (not pits) in Delaware does it matter what color my floats are?
How should trap floats be marked? I didn't see anything in the regs.

I think they are supposed to be all white.    I'll look to confirm that.

It is white and I agree with Stuff.     There is just about every color of the rainbow out there in terms of floats, and I haven't heard about the float-color fashion police busting balls over displaying a color other than white.

Reminds me of the Andre Agassi @ Wimbleton 20 or so years ago.    Wink

hi guys,

i know this thread was set at the 2009 season but i have some info for you. if you have any pots in Delaware they def need to be a white float.do not use a white jug. last year (2009) my brother in law and i were crabbing at the power plant (i.r) anyways, we got checked i had names on the jugs but they were not floats. we had 4 sitting all night. when we were checked we were picking up the first one heading in. they gave us a warning on it but told us that this year (2010) it will be enforced fairly heavy down in those parts. just a heads up to all of you who put traps out from  bay and up the i.r. river.

Ron,

I have a couple of DE questions, at least two of which are none of my business.  But I'll ask anyway.  If you don't want to answer, I won't hold it against you. 

1.  The summary linked to your original post says buoys for POTS have to be white, but doesn't mention anything about buoys for TRAPS having to be white.  Is there any more detail in the regs?

2.  If I purchase a DE boat fishing license this year, and my father and I are on the boat, is our limit one or two bushels?

3.  (A NOMB question) I thought I read on another post that you were going to try trotlining in NJ this year.  Is there any reason you don't do it in DE with their unlimited length rule?

4.  (Another NOMB question) I hear a lot of talk about a power plant on the IR.  I don't see one on any map I have looked at.  Is everyone referring to Salem?

Oh, de crab, he taste so fine.
Yuh catch 'um wid a neck an' a line.
Bile de water 'til 'e good 'n hot.
Den eat de crab strait from 'de pot.

Oh, de beer, he taste so chilly.
Drinks it 'til I gets too silly.
Washin' down 'de crab an' butter.
If I doesn't fall down, I'll 'ave anudder.

It's not clearly stated if  "trap" buoys having to be white, but pot floats must be white.    I was stopped by DNR last year and they didn't say a peep about my orange floats.   My guess is, if push came to shove, white is probably the letter of law.

2.  If I purchase a DE boat fishing license this year, and my father and I are on the boat, is our limit one or two bushels?

If you have a boat license, it allows everyone on the boat to legally crab even if they are unlicensed.    An unlicensed individual is not, however, entitled to keep a bushel of crabs.    So, in other words, if you and your father are on the boat, and your father is unlicensed, you would be entitled to keep one bushel of crabs.     If your father is licensed, you can keep two bushels.  

Quote
3.  (A NOMB question) I thought I read on another post that you were going to try trotlining in NJ this year.  Is there any reason you don't do it in DE with their unlimited length rule?


I usually crab by myself in DE and find it easier to pull traps when by myself.    I never crab by myself off my pontoon boat, so I figured I would rig up a prop stick and try it out this year for something different.

4.  (Another NOMB question) I hear a lot of talk about a power plant on the IR.  I don't see one on any map I have looked at.  Is everyone referring to Salem?

There is a power plant on the Indian River.    It's located on Burton Island.
