Smoked carp tastes just as good as smoked salmon .....when you don't have any smoked salmon.

Kevin got back to me right away!
 
That's always a good sign...

I am ordering 10 "topless" traps. He seems like a great guy and his prices are excellent. I must also say that he is very fair on shipping. Where as most places I have seen online that sell traps charge a set amt. for the first trap (Shipping I mean) and addl $$ for each trap thereafter. Kevin gave me an excellent shipping price and I must say I simply had to jump on it. So I am off to pick up a money order and now I can't wait till they get here and I can get out Crabbin' Smiley

Thanks everyone for the help. Smiley

Saw  and copied this this from the MD DNR website.

Recreational Crabbing Reminders 
A new crab trap is showing up at Maryland sport fishing retail stores under the name of CRAB ALERT. This trap is designed so that when a crab grabs the bait, a spring-loaded trap door closes automatically. Please be aware that a crab trap that automatically closes, without a manual force, is illegal to use in Maryland. Using illegal methods to catch crabs has a maximum penalty of $500 for the first offense.

According to Maryland regulation, a collapsible crab trap is defined as a manually operated, portable device having a flat bottom not more than 1 square foot, and not more than four articulated sides, each with an area not more than 1 square foot. The trap shall be designed so that failure to apply manually exerted tension on the closing mechanism allows the crabs to escape. In other words, a crab trap must allow crabs to enter and exit
