I have been crabbing for several years now and have had alot of fun catching many very nice (and tasty Grin) blue crabs yet I now have a question that some of you fellow crabbers might know. I was just wondering, because I've seen several new crab pots/traps lately, what the difference is (if any) between the blue crab and stone crab pots. Should i purchase a new "Stone Crab Trap" to go along with my so called Blue Crab Pot? Thanks for all help & responses. Wink

I may not be any help to you as I've never even eaten a stone crab let alone caught one.  But I would think you might need a different type of pot.  From everything I've ever seen (on TV) stone crab pots are usually wooden and very enclosed. Maybe its just a regional thing or maybe there si sometime of reasoning behind I'm not sure.  Do a little google search or maybe look for a forum that deals with fishing and crabbing around the southeast and you'll probbaly get a better answer.

Everyone that I know that recreationally fishes for Stone Crabs use Cudjoe traps.

I have only caught one Stone Crab and that was in a topless Blue Crab trap.
The crab was small and was released.

Here in Texas Stone crabs are not the common, but we still catch a few in the traps with the blue claws.  My brother caught this one in June, and I think we got five or six that day.

I like sticking with my Blue Crab pots, but if there's a significant reasoning behind buying a different pot (such as a Stone Crab pot) then I'll certainly invest in it. I love Blue Crab, but those Stone Crab claws look/sound mighty tasty too! Grin Nice pic above by the way.
