I usually go crabbing by the Islip Marina.  One morning last season, I was crabbing alone from the shore when a guy pulled in a car and retrieved a large trap.  It was full of crabs and looked to me like a commercial trap.  Are there regulations on the size of trap a recreational crabber can use?  Is it legal to leave the trap submerged overnight, leave the area, and come back to retrieve the next day?

As far as i know, there's really no "illegal" way to get crabs, as long as you do not exceed the 50 per person per day limit. Lots of poeple up here us the over night pots. We just prefer the "action" of the drop-door traps, as well as hand lines.

Crimson,

Is the marina safe to crab?

At some marinas, Ive experienced catching crabs that had machine oil in their lungs from the boats.. Have you experienced this at that marina?

thanks

I've only gone crabbing at that site.  Aren't they supposed to have marine oil in their lungs?  Isn't that where it comes from?

Seriously, I've never noticed anything like that and there is a guy who looks 80 who says he's been eating crabs from that spot for most of his life....he might be 25 though.

Just gives me another reason to start crabbing from the canoe.  Anyone interested?
