Not many commercial guys use those type of Pots.. They are too short to catch big crabs..And the shorter pots in the pics are pure junk.. Not to bust anyones chops..  Roll Eyes

The Middle partition needs to have about a  6 inch clearance so the crab can go through with out bumping into the top of the pot.. If they bump the top of the pot, they will go back into the bottom of the pot.. Then they have a lot better chance of getting out..

That is the kind of traps we use here in Louisiana.  They work good for us but this is mostly brackish water.

We use them for commercial fishing.  The ones I use are on this page http://www.crab-trap.com/crab/, the 12 mesh 4 funnel with baffle trap.

Marshrat make sure to measure the big ones and take pics, we have heard the rumors of the mega 10 and 11 inch crabs you all have there but never seen the pics to back it up  Roll Eyes

That is the first I have heard of that.  The biggest I have caught was just over 8".  Maybe further east they catch those big ones.  If I ever catch one 10" or better Shocked, believe me I will take pictures and post.

Common name is the Mud crab in the Austra-asian region also known as a mangrove crab.  I understand they get to big and have those monster claws.  Also Australia is trying some aquafarming for them.
