I'm trying to figure out your guy's thoughts on etiquette of crabbing, maybe make a list of bad behaviors you've seen. I'm a fishermen through and through. I'm new to trotlining and I don't use commercial crab pots. Most of these things have to do with the shore because thats where my experience lies. Would be helpful to learn from the commercial guys as well.....

Waking while runing  a trot line in a canoe is rough.... or any small boat please be considerate.

I used to hand line with chickn and one  time a guy poped a mated pair of a piling of  a peir right in front of me and then bragged about how he had gotten a dozen... when in fact very few people had gotten any and most had kids...

Dropping a crab pot on a crowded public fishing pier.

Tough to get me worked up while I'm on the water, except.......

1.  When jet skiers use your floats as slalom cones.

2.  When someone runs full-bore 50' from your traps.

#1  I had a guy pull three kids (slalom) on a tube through my floats. I yelled and he wanted to fight. I told him my traps have ropes attached and it would break a neck if intangled at that speed. He yelled and told me to get out of the channel. I was at least 30' off of the channel. I told him to stick around and we would let the DNR handle this. His young son said, "come on dad, let's go". I failed to mention every other word out of his mouth was the F word. Very nice in front of young children.

#2  I think people should scope out an area they are going to crab before laying traps or line. I have had guys laying traps and end up 15' from my line of traps.  If I am laying my line or traps I go to each boat and tell them my plans. You make some good friends this way.

#3  This is a positive. I laid my traps close to shore. I was getting nothing. I saw a fellow way out in the middle checking traps. I motored out and asked how he was doing. He said he pert near had a bushel. I said do you mind if I come out and lay about 150' to the right or left of you. He said come on out and lay right beside me, I am getting ready to pull up. I busheled out in less then three hours.

1.  monofilament.  piles of it everywhere.  getting my feet tangled in it when i am wading. 

2.   seeing people keep shorts, especially when there are plenty of legal crab around

3.   midge flies

4.   green flies

5.  i also hate when i throw a crab into the cooler only to have another crab clamp down on his face followed by a loud crunch.

Skate eating all of the clams off of the trotline in less than an hour.

Someone drift fishing accross your trot-line causing you to get mono hung up in your winder when you pull up.

Extremely hot weather

Having to wake the mate up in the morning to go crabbing.  Mate not showing up when baiting lines.

Wife wanting to keep you out all night the night before.

Having someone that only calls you the morning of July 4th to buy crabs at a discounted rate.  Then get mad when I say no.

Just one of the few bad apples that keeps wizzing in the MSSA's and TF's milk.  Not because I have violations (because I don't'), but because I'm catching the resources that they claim to own and have more rights to.

Agreed!  What I do when I see someone waiting on a spot is go ask him where he plans on laying his gear. If its where I wanna crab then I just go with plan B.
