Cool, I won't need bait then. Just chop you up in tiny bits. Shocked Shocked laugh laugh Actually, the software at work was being upgraded this morning (still going on), and I couldn't access my main work. So, I started reading some of the other boards and got an error message first. It was interesting reading another states take on the rules and regs, even terminology. I think the La. rules called a female with eggs, as having berries. I think my farthest trip this year is going to be the Chessie.

When the law says "only 6 traps can be fished at a time" does that mean per person or per group. ex. Two people go crabbing. Can they have 12 traps or only 6?

The Texas Regs indicate the following Legal Devices and Restrictions for taking crabs:

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Crab Line:
A baited line with no hook attached.
No restrictions.


Does this mean that a crab trotline is legal to use on weekends?  Fishing trotlines must be removed from most saltwater bays from 1 PM on Fridays until 1 PM on Sundays of each week.  Has anyone from Texas ever had to convince a game warden that their trotline with snoods was not a trotline?

For each person that has a Texas recreational fishing license with a saltwater stamp you can have 6 crab traps.

ex. Four people = 24 traps.   Smiley

I had a question concerning Texas Regs. I live in Laredo, Texas which is only 3 hours from Corpus Christi area. I have been wanting to take my daughter over there to do some crabbing. I noticed the 6 crab trap per person in the TPWD regs but does that also include Folding Panel traps? It seemed to me they were talking about the trap/pot with culling rings etc. From what I read on this site several people in other states can use multiple folding panel traps. I was thinking of picking up 15 of Captain Bruces traps but if they are also restricted to 6 per person 12 is all I will need. I figure my daughter and I can toss out 12 and hand line chicken neck a bunch.

Also if any of you know some good spots to go crabbing in Baffin Bay, Corpus Christi to Port Aransas area please give me some advice. As far as a boat, all I have is a 14' Tracker with a 9.9 Mercury. I feel pretty safe on it hanging close to shore in the intercoastal area. I am pretty familiar with the intercoastal area near Mustang Island, Oso Bay and some of the Baffin Bay area.

The only regulations on folding traps are:

Folding Panel Traps
Only crabs may be taken.
Overall surface area (including panels) may not exceed 16 square feet.

The definition of a crab trap is different than a folding trap.

The 2014-2015 Regs can be found here:
http://tpwd.texas.gov/regulations/outdoor-annual/fishing/shellfish-regulations/crab-and-ghost-shrimp-legal-devices-and-restrictions

I have a question about this:
"Must be marked with a white floating buoy not less than 6 inches in height, 6 inches in length and 6 inches in width, bearing a 2-inch wide center stripe of contrasting color, attached to the crab trap."

Where can one purchase such a buoy? Every buoy I have seen is too small (5" round) or lacks the required contrasting color.
