I'd rescue your kids, but we have a problem with theft here so it's a 3rd degree felony to molest crab traps, even apparently abandoned traps, traps in the marsh, on the beach, etc, etc..
Traps move during storms, I've had some move 1/2 to 3/4 of a mile during a good blow, I find them, no big deal.
To lazy to bring them in? No, but with 3000 traps that not feasible or really possible.
If your really concerned with the crabs welfare then throw the trap back in the surf, don't steal the mans crabs.

Common sense is you don't mess with what ain't yours.

I apologize, I didn't think about you being that close to D.C. and your idea of common sense being different from the rest of the country(excluding CA). laugh laugh laugh

Touche'

talked to the boys and the genereal feeling is if you find the owner - charge him $150 per trap to clean up the beach, can't renew license til he pays

NOT ONE waterman took responsibility for their derelict traps and said we should clean this up

you guys just scream -- just don't touch my trash traps

and you wonder why

Will the MAN come back and check his traps that were laying on the beach and are now in the surf because I care and I put them in the surf

It's called RESPONSIBILITY not arrogance

I don't have a beach within 100 miles of my house so.... but I participated in a 10 day derelict trap removal program July 2011, picked up 177 derelict traps with aprox 50% being recreational traps. Our program is funded 100% from our license and tag fees.

My Father lives down in Oriental NC.  There are commerical traps every-where along the shore line.  He says the sailboats coming in and out of the town drag the pots all around the sound.  I don't know who picks up the old pots but someone must at some point, cause they are as far as the eye can see.

Down here, you'll see peeler pots on the beach all the time.  They are there to dry....
