In your photo it appears that the float is pieced together, or is it one single section ?




No, what I did was shave the center so it was smaller diameter to keep the line from "sliding" off, so to speak....What you then see is a slit in the end that allows me to "shorten" the line if in shallow water...I put 25' on...When I'm done I remove the line/snap swivel and wrap it up, then "cinch" the tag end in the slot...I can then throw it in the bag and not worry about it unraveling...I am adding a link to a few pics....

great info and pics fellas. question, im planning on picking up a small string of moose traps (maybe 10 or so). is it worth it to get the 12" trap or stick with the 10"? does haveing multiple baits in the trap really bring in more crabs? anothe question is, will the snood system secure bunker in the trap as well as the saftey pin type clip? bunker gets ripped up pretty quickly and i would be concerned about it being pulled from the snood where as necks are a little tougher and hence hold better.

I use 10" traps with two bait snoods.   I am a big fan of two baits per trap.

FWIW, I made my floats big enough to "float" my traps...I had some in the past in too deep. Had to wait for low tide, OR slack, as the float was pulled under by current or grass getting on the line..I keep the floats in a decoy bag and attach when dropping them..


You don't have to put your name on your floats in Jersey?

Ron, I'm not sure, BUT, if you look close, I see my name, BUT they are faded and need redoing...The foam does not hold magic marker very well...btw, these traps seldom see NJ waters Grin

Not for trap floats.    If you have out crab pots you need to have your license # on the buoy.

Even though it's not required, I put my name  and phone number on my floats.  Never know when a good Samaritan would give a call with a found trap.

Oh, de crab, he taste so fine.
Yuh catch 'um wid a neck an' a line.
Bile de water 'til 'e good 'n hot.
Den eat de crab strait from 'de pot.

Oh, de beer, he taste so chilly.
Drinks it 'til I gets too silly.
Washin' down 'de crab an' butter.
If I doesn't fall down, I'll 'ave anudder.
