Hi folks this is a SUPER forum and the amount of info is amazing.  I have a quick question.  My wife and I will be moving to FL sooner than later from the Eastern shore of MD and I was wondering if one of you experts could send me a few bullets regarding the requirments for a FL commercial crabbing license?  Many thanks.  I have looked all over the FL DNR site and one needs to be a [dang] lawyer to understand their regs.  Simple version would be great.  This would be for a "New license".
Thanks,
Rick

Many thanks RD.  Do you suggest where I start looking?  I've delt with the MD DNR folks and if you speak with 3 people you get 3 different answers.
Thanks,
Rick

I will ask around as most of us that crab full time have a extra license because there is still talk of reducing pots a little more.

Hey R D I have a few questions can you email me at [email protected].  I don't want to tie up the forum and get string after string started if you know what I mean.
Thanks man,

The so-called shoreline exemption has me baffled with it's double or triple negatives and convoluted phrasing.  It seems to allow Florida residents to crab without a license if they are crabbing from shore with a line which is not attached to a reel.  However, a license is required if a dip net or landing net is used.  I've never been successful at landing a crab on a line without a net.  Am I missing something, or is the exemption meaningless?

This shouldn't bother me as I am not a Florida resident.  Sometimes I just enjoy banging my head against a wall. :-)
