I have a hotel style [curd] trap. just bought it and its probably the biggest size allowed for a non-commercial crab trap. I was wondering what rope i should use to hold onto this sucker. I know we cannot use floating but what would be an ideal type?

The smaller the rope the harder it will be on your hands.  Its an overkill but if I was raising traps by hand I would use 3/8 nylon rope.  It will sink and be easy on your hands.

They sell pre-rigged ropes for the crab pots that come pre-rigged with 4 clips to ensure your catch makes it back into the boat. They also sell weighted line at your local marine supply store to avoid getting tangled in someone's prop ( a lose-lose for both you and boat owner).

 Not sure if this is your first crab pot but if it is Remember to mark your buoy with your non-commercial crab pot license #. License is only $2 for the year and allows you to drop 2 of them. I have a couple of the large "hotel style pots" and on a good 3 day soak you could get a good 2 dozen in one of the them. (watch out for the crab pot thieves-they are out there)

Good Luck with your new crab pot
