When peelers are caught while trotlining, can they just be thrown with the others, or do they have to be seperate.  And how good is dnr with identifying them.  Can they only be caught for shedding purposes or can they be sold when thrown in with the others.  Comar doesn't seem very specific other than the measurement

They need to be separated because first off, most (99.999%) are sally's and would be undersized.  I can't say if the DNR can tell the ripeness of them as I have never had one ask to check them.  Usually they ask me if I have any and ask to see them but never check them closely.  Shedding or bait.  Again, if they are thrown in with the other females they are illegal.  Sooks (mature females) are legal at any size.  Peelers are not mature.  Also, if your license does not allow femal catch, all females are off limits.

Just want to add to crabbyd, ripe peelers don't eat so it's unlikely you'll catch a ripe male on the line feeding and if you catch a female, she's gonna be under a jimmy.

A green peeler will feed, and they're tough to see if you don't know what your looking for.

correct.  also a green peeler that is eating is highly unlikely to shed in captivity before they die.

I can't speak for all NRP officers, but I'll take the under in regards to how well they can identity a peeler.

I always thought that to but my results were outstanding. A few years ago Mr Ray gave me a dozen peelers he caught off his dipper. I thought at that time any peeler would not eat. I learned something that day as I checked them after he gave them to me and they were sure peelers. All but 1 or 2 shed in my system. I still to this day forget to check for the males because as soon as I see a crab that small they get sent back. Most of them took a week to 2 weeks to shed but i had good luck with them. Needless to say i still keep any stage of the peeler and take my chances. As long as the water is right I dont have many problems keeping them alive.
