Need some guidance on this issue. Several people on the piers have said it is illegal ( or will be by this summer) to use chicken as bait because of the bacteria it contains. I personally use a combo of that and bunker.
Is there such a law or is it still personal preference?

From the NJDFW website:

Recreational Crabbing Techniques

Blue crabs are abundant all along the Jersey coast, in tidal creeks and rivers and in shallow, saltwater bays, from the Hudson River to Delaware Bay. Although most small boats are ideal for reaching crabbing areas, almost any bank, bulkhead, bridge or pier bordering tidal waters can provide excellent crabbing.

One of the most popular methods is to use baited lines or traps from the bank or a boat. The most common baits are menhaden (bunker) and chicken necks, but any fresh fish will work well. Many crabbers save the racks from filleted fish for crab bait. A very inexpensive bait line can be made by tying a 6 oz. sinker and a large (8/0) hook to one end of 15 to 20 feet of cord.


I doubt they would put that out there and encourage the use of chicken if they are considering making it illegal.

Oh, de crab, he taste so fine.

It is not illegal.    That's bait shops trying to sell bunker.    Nothing more.

This topic has been previously discussed.
