Two 20 pound rockfish will feed plenty of neighbors.

Plus, at least in VA, it is a 1 bu vessel limit so if you and your buddy go out it really is a 1/2 bu limit if you split it even.  You and your buddy can each keep two 20# stripers if you so choose.

I think 1 Bu is about right.

Not worth me putting gas in the truck, gas in the boat, buying my license, and spending any money in Md if I can only get two dozen. (just playing devils advocate). But it would really be worthless for anyone outside of the state.

Ok...License for me, one for my wife, one for each of my kids, one for each of my grandchildren.  Wow, I'm up to 14 doz.  That's 3 1/2  bushels of Wye River crabs.  Grin

Nice think through. I could live with 2 dozen per crabber too. I got some grandkids, nieces and nephews. Actually I live directly across the treet from a school, lots of school kids pass here every day. I am sure I could stir some summer time interest there also.

What about the unlicensed crabbers......1 crab per person?  2 dozen is rediculous. It would take longer to launch the boat and put it back on the trailer than it would take to catch the crabs.JMO

Again, and respectfully, It's not the states' responsibility for you to feed the neighborhood crabs. The license is for individual crabber.

My neighbors love rockfish, but I'm still only allowed 2.

Along the same lines, perhaps if you do not make 100 % of your income from fishing/crabbing, you shouldn't hold a comm license.

First off, there is no such thing as unlicensed crabbers anymore, all crabbers must be licensed. If you have a crab in possession, you should have license.

Secondly, it doesnt matter how many people you think you can take out and safely handle on your boat, if they have a crab license, they are allowed 2 dozen each........but keep in mind, they must call in and get a confirmation number to crab that day, and they must also call back in and report their catch.....so if you feel like doing all that for your nieces and nephews and whoever else you want.......go ahead. Your within the law.

3rd, you could always imply a boat limit.

4th......if your from out of state, and your saying its not worth gasing your boat and spending money in MD.....so, be it, then dont. I'm certain MD's economy wont crash because you didnt buy some Ding Dongs and a Big Gulp from 7/11.

1st-Better check your regs, Chris, nothing changed for recs this year.  You are still allowed to crab w/o a license.

2nd-Iwent [dang] near every weekend from may thru nov, and only got checked once, if someone is inclined to break the law, a reg requiring approval likely won't stop them.  And, if the fines are anything like what repeat comm offenders incurr, it should amount to about 5 dollars.

3rd-there is a boat limit-1 bushel, or 2 if more than 1 license is on board

Dom,
#1 I know that....it was an idea, I elaborated on....nothing more

#2
Stop making this a comm/rec issuse.....and by doing so, just implicates your more concerned about you, than you are the crabs.....and if the case(hypothetically, I'm sure your not) you can keep your out of state money, but dont touch our crabs!

#3
I know that........see number #1 and re-read my posts.

Wasn't trying to make it comm/rec, was pointing out the NRP/courts  lack of enforcement/fines, and since you never hear rec cases in the news I can't determine what a repeat rec might be fined.

Any lack of enforcement is an NRP issue....but it doesnt give anyone the right to poach......and it is poaching!

I can count on one hand the number of commercially licensed people I know that make 100% of their living from the water.  [Sam Hill], maybe on 2 fingers. Roll Eyes  Sounds like some folks on here are against that... one of which is Pixydust, so that's no suprise. Roll Eyes Roll Eyes
