Went out just to say I did. Windy enough that Kite surfers were there with me. Picked up around 5 dozen nice ones. Very few females or small crabs/
Water temp was 55 degrees. 6-8 feet of water

Great report--that is hard core crabbing in those weather conditions!  I have been itching to go the past few days but I stayed close to home in this weather.

The title says TL and traps, and tere are some ring traps in one of your photos, did you you catch the crabs with trotline plus some ring traps?

Looking at the last photo, that water was rough.  Shocked  You had a great catch crabbing with those water and wind conditions.

Thanks for sharing.

I HAVE 6 RING TRAPS OF THE CHEAP KIND. BOUGHT 12 ON AMAZON FOR $36.00 RIGGED MY SELF. I HAVE 6 LEFT AND 8 OPEN TOP TRAPS. RING TRAPS OUT CRABBED OTHERS ALL SUMMER. YOU HAVE TO RIG THEM CORRECTLY AND PULL THEM FROM DOWN WIND DOWN TIDE. THEY DON'T LAST LONG BUT FOR $3.00 EACH i BUY 12 NEW ONES EACH SPRING AND RE-USE MY RIGS.

IV'E NEVER BOUGHT A BOX TRAP, EVERYONE I HAVE I EITHER CAUGHT ON MY TROTLINE OR WAS GIVEN TO ME.

CRABS WERE MIXED SOME FULL AND SOME LIGHT

Thanks for the follow up.  I usually use a trotline but there are times when they drop off too much and that convinced me to also use traps and rings sometimes.

I have used those cotton net rings (with new bridle lines and a small float where the three lines intersect) for many years and I have done very well with them.  It is interesting to hear that you did better with net rings than the traps.

Sounds like my results. The rings have always outcrabbed any kind of trap but they do have to be made just right. I still have mine from 30 years ago. For me it doesn't matter if the ring is in the front, back, side or even under the boat. The majority of the crabs don't even try to escape.
