Hi all,
   Getting ready for annual crabbing trip out of Dicks Landing in Bayville, NJ. I have a couple of questions.We use drop lines and single 4 door traps.

1. If we get a crabbing license can we use commercial traps -  Legal in NJ?
2. Are the snare traps that I have been seeing legal in NJ?
3. Crabbing at night with spotlights - Legal in NJ?

This is a great site. I can't keep my mind on work - can't wait to get out there.
Thanks for all the great posts.
Brian

Brianmac: Sorry to let you know that Dick's Landing is out of business.
You can rent a boat a few miles south of dick's at Trixie's . If you purchase a recreational crab pot license, you can set 2 pots out. I don't know about snare traps or spotlight crabbing. Good luck. Crabbing has been very poor in the Barnegat Bay this year.

wasup brianmack....a rec crabbin license will let you use 2 comm. pots. check the regs, though... i think if you set it in a creek less than 50 ft wide you need the turtle excluder device on it. the state dept of fish and game website has all the info.
 crabbing at nite w/ spotlite... absolutely. my favorite way of catchin them. as a matter of fact, i woke up this morn. before work at 3 am. and went to one of my spots. got a half dozen shedders for my fishin buddy, 2 softshells and a dozen or so hardshells. had to throw back a couple papershells, though. just a little too stiff to be softies Cry Cry
