As I was reading the site this morning I thought that I needed to let Felinis and others know what a great service he performs.  Early in June, I sat on the fishing pier at  Rocky Point Park thinking that I was going to catch crabs in my single circle trap.  Along came Fleinis, who did not tell me I was crazy, but instead talked about various types of traps; his experiences crabbing from Piers; and his fascination with crabbing.  As he left he mentioned this site and his user name.  What a great discovery for me.  Since that time, I have learned so much about crabbing.  I also appreciate that he remembers that not all crabbing fanatics have access to a boat; many of us chicken neckers are crabbing from shore.  So, I just wanted to say thanks for a great summer to Felinis. 

Now, a question.  Is it legal to catch fish on a fishing rod using chicken as the bait?

I tried it with a lot of success this weekend.  Got a dozen; yes, I know that is not a lot but it is just about what my husband and I need for a nice dinner.....along with some corn on the cob; crabbing from the shore at Jonas Green State Park.  We had so much fun using the rod and I thought it could not possibly be legal.  Anyone know for sure?

Thanks! Grin

Welcome to the board! 

Do you mean catching crabs from the fishing pole?  If so,  I don't think it is illegal at all...but rules vary from state to state!

Good luck with your crabbing!

I know this is an old post but I found it in a word search. I was on a pier the other day. A Game and fish guy came out checking licenses. I showed him mine the asked why I needed a lic to crab. He told me it was because I was using a "fishing pole". I told him it wasn't a fishing pole, it was a crabbing pole. He gave me one [Sam Hill] of a dirty look. I thanked him and carried on.

I have been asked many time in the past for a lic. Every time I tell them I was just crabbing they told me "good luck and have a nice day" without seeing my lic. Anybody in VA know if the rules have changed or did I just run into a guy having a bad day? ? ?

In MD, if using less than 10 traps and keeping less than 2 doz of crabs, no license is needed.
How do you retrieve your crab when they are out of the water?  Are you suing them crabhawk?
