I have been an avid crabber most of life but am new to running a trotline.  After crabing this weekend I steamed the crabs and left my baited 1200ft trotline in the yard with the intent of getting removing the old necks that evening.  Well, one thing led to another and I didn't get around to it until the next evening.  It was close to 90 degrees both days!!  Needless to say, after removing 200 fly and maggot ridden, stinky & nasty baits I won't be doing that again!!  My hands are just now starting to smell normal again!!  Wow that was nasty!!!

 If you hate flies then your in the wrong buiseness or hobby. I know atleast 3000 flies by name now over the last 10 years and yes even some of their kids, the maggots. i did this once but with clams ,even worse with just the smell.

Unfortunately I have done this more than once. I used the gloves the second time but it still made me gag. the third time I bought a bag of ice and put the whole trot line in a cooler because I thought I would crab again in the morning. I didn't so De-baiting was not quite as bad because I had the ice cooler deal. I have learned it is not worth trying to save chicken neck, just De-bait while still on the water when done crabbing!
