   I had some company for a few day and he never crabbed so Sat we put out 3 pots with bunker and went back Mon to check but also took a dozen traps with necks. Checked the pots first and 3 keepers out of 3 pots  Sad dropped the empty pots back at the same spot mostly to keep room in the boat for trap running, after about 4 hours we had 17 nice crabs so went to gather the empty pots to take in and had 5 keepers in them so we were now up to 22. The pots caught more in 4 hours than in 2 days so I'm sure someone stole my crabs early that morning, just glad they left the pots.

LEGAL GEAR
Any person may use the following gear to take blue crabs in Delaware with the purchase of a general fishing license.
1. no more than two crab pots*
2. crab traps** (no limit on the number or size)
3. trot line (no length limit)
4. dip net
5. seine net (no more than 300 feet in length)
6. hand line(s) (no limit on the number

Definitely one pot too many according to his post if in Delaware.

Gary S signature says fenwick Delaware so i assume he was using pots in delaware which is legal as a Rec. I do agree that some do not realize it is illegal in chesapeake tribs.  I have seen recs launch from Rolphs with pots on chester river and drop them in Southeast creek while running their topless

  tlynch, I guess I should have added location, it was Delaware and with 2 of us we could have used 4 pots but I only had 3. I am very careful with the rules as when crabbing in DE where I do, the smoke from my cigar can be smelled in MD  Grin. I drop the pots safely in DE but the line of traps can cross the line into MD legally. Also I'm originally from Red Lion.

 And that person also has a license, correct?   Any person may use the following gear to take blue crabs in Delaware with the purchase of a general fishing license.

 So maybe that person had a license too.  The state of Delaware thanks him.

Unlimited traps and trotline! Does that screw up the commercials? What is the bag limit per person (Sports crabber)?
