 Huh What about topless traps in Texas?  I suspect there is no limit, but I want to be sure.  If they are legal, how many can I have on my boat?  Can I have 6 standard traps and 20 topless at the same time?

I believe they would fall under the definition of Folding Panel Traps.

The rules for them state:

* Only crabs may be taken.

* Overall surface area (including panels) may not exceed 16 square feet.

There are no limits on the number you can use.

Crab traps are listed following the folding panel trap and they are limited to 6.  That is 6 per licensed crabber and not per boat.  (As verified with Texas Parks and Wildlife)

Thanks Craig.  That will make for some interesting crabbing because I have about 10 topless traps.  I'm sending you a PM.
