I just spoke with someone at Ma div of Marine Fisheries and I was told I do not need to have my lic numbers on this style trap. It would be the same as using a net. I was thinking that is not true.

Any input ? Huh

Ya....you DON'T need a trap tag on those kind of traps........traps which you tend while fishing.......which really make them very slow moving dip nets......unlike crab POTS which you bait and leave like a lobster pot and have to have a trap tag ......you fish crab pots under your MA 10 pot family/lobster permit.
