Would it be legal to use a cordless drill to pull in a hand line?

Thank you

Legality I don’t know. Just not sure it would work out so well. Seems a little fast on the retrieve and would shake the crabs off. Just my opinion though. Seems overkill

Each one of us here today will at one time in our lives look upon a loved one who is in need and ask the same question: We are willing to help, Lord, but what, if anything, is needed? For it is true we can seldom help those closest to us. Either we don't know what part of ourselves to give or, more often than not, the part we have to give is not wanted. And so it is those we live with and should know who elude us. But we can still love them - we can love completely without complete understanding.

I understand it could be overkill. I plan on pulling a good number of hand lines from my kayak. I am thinking about using an old cordless drill which I can easily add a speed control to slow down the retrieval. I enjoy tinkering, I am a McGyver of sorts  Grin

The Code of Maryland Regulations (Last Updated: June 30, 2020)
Sec. 08.02.03.01. Crabbing Gear

B. Recreational Gear-Definitions.
....
6) "Handline" means a fishing line managed primarily by hand.


The above
Where is the line drawn between "primarily by hand" and use of a  "mechanical device" like referenced in C. Commercial Gear. #6 "Hand Scrape"?

I'd call DNR and ask.  Since you're on a kayak though, wouldn't you need a crabbing license?  And if have said license, then you can probably pull those lines in any way you want?

I got 2 doubts...

I doubt it will work and I doubt DNR really cares.

I agree about the DNR. If anything I’d wait to get “caught”. Firstly, I don’t think the DNR would know what to think and secondly, he’s not gonna take you to jail or give you a $500 fine. And yes they probably wony care.

I'm not altogether certain I'd want to try to manage several "loose" LiPo batteries (i'm pretty sure you'd need spares) in a saltwater environment in a yak...

Seems like overkill to pull in a handline.  How do you plan to paddle that yak?

I don't know about the drill idea.  Pulling in a hand line is all about "feel".  Lotta times I start pulling, I feel the crab let go, I hold the line still for a few seconds and I can feel him jump back on.  Ya can't do that with a drill.  I'm sure you can catch a few but you'd probably lose just as many.

If auto-dippers are legal than I don't see why a cordless drill wouldn't be.

Seems fine to me within the code but the license is the same cost as a package of bait...I'd just get the license.
