I am looking for anyone who actually knows if you can use crab snares in Florida from the shore.  The regulations are about as clear as mud.

I would say snares are not legal gear.

Yes I got hold of the State of Fl and got confirmation they are not legal. which is so much Bull ship.   They are pretty well legal everywhere else and a great way to catch crab from the shore.

If it doesn't specifically say crab snares in the regs, it will take at least a year, maybe more, to get it included.  Why not leave that to the inventor and his lobbyist.  I would think that he would make the effort as he has been profiting by selling what he knows is illegal gear.
