In Virginia you can have two pots "tied" to your pier.  If you have a fishing license for you boat, you can have two more.  Put the boat License number on the float.  Remeber you can not take crabs from your pots (the ones not tied to your pier) on Sundays.

Hey "CRABBYBOY" -

You don't say where you crab. In New Jersey you may only have two traps that you leave unattended per person/license. You may license your spouse, child etc..... but .... they must be in the boat/dock with you when you gather your crabs.

You can go on line and get your 'pot' license for only $2.00 at:

http://www.nj.gov/NJFish/

You don't need a license to hand net, or "chicken neck", (handline).

I crab in Maryland and have never heard of a license to set 2 additional pots. Not saying it's not possible, but I doubt it.

Here is the 2003 MD regs.
here's the reg. found on page 22 of the 2002- 2003 "Laws and regulations concerning the harvest of crabs" . The book is available from the DNR at no charge.
*****************************************

4-811. Restrictions on use of crab pots by landowners in certain counties.

Any owner of tidewater shoreline property in Anne Arundel, Baltimore, Worcester, Calvert, Charles, St. Mary's, Somerset, and Wicomico Counties may set not more than four crab pots attached to his pier or dock, by line, string or rope, or attached to a pole set not more than 200 feet from shore. This pole shall be conspicuously marked by colored tape or similar material and shall have on it a sign at least 6 inches by 6 inches indicating the owner's name and address. In Worcester County, an owner of tidewater shoreline property may set not more than 4 crab pots attached to a buoy or float set not more than 200 feet from shore. In Worcester County, this buoy or float shall be colored or painted orange and conspicuously marked by a sign at least 6 inches by 6 inches indicating the owner's name and address. Pots may be set any day or night during the crab season when the shore owner or a member of his family is residing at the owner's shore property. Any person catching crabs in this manner shall use them for personal consumption only and may not sell them. The provisions of this section do not apply in the Potomac River.

*****************************************

Of course the regs are subject to change. If changes are proposed, they will appear in the Maryland Register, which is published every other week. My guess is that this reg has not been changed, but it is just a guess. For confirmation you could phone DNR in your county for verification.

Also in Virginia, you can get a 5 pot recreational license for $29.00.  Thats per person. You could have one and your family members could have additional ones.  The person with the license must be onboard when tending the pots.. Again you can not attend them on Sunday.  Also, commercial crabers will be off the water by 13:00 so you will draw the attention of any vmrc officer in site.  Make sure you cull your crabs right away. In Viriginia these guys do not give warning tickets.  A freind of mine got a $150.00 ticket last summer after telling the officer that he culled his crabs when he got into his pier.
