I know the rules say pot buoys must be marked with your DNR ID, but do trap buoys also need to be marked?

Here's regs on traps.

(1) DNRid number, if recreationally crabbing in the Chesapeake Bay or its tidal tributaries;

(2) Name and address, if recreationally crabbing in the Atlantic Ocean, its coastal bays, or their tidal tributaries; or

(3) Commercial license number.

.........

Commercial Pots:
(c) Each buoy shall be clearly marked with the identification number of the licensee in letters at least 2 inches high, and, if the buoy is attached to a string of crab pots, with the number of pots in the string.

..........

And for Recreational POTS
D. General Requirements.

(1) A person may use crab pots to catch crabs for recreational purposes only:

(a) If the person is:

(i) An owner, lessee, or tenant of a private property along the shore; or

(b) If using the crab pot in accordance with §§B, C, D, and H of this regulation; and

(c) If crabbing from a property located on the Chesapeake Bay or its tidal tributaries, only if the crab pots have been properly registered with the Department.

Hartford Crabber took care of the question you asked........... in exquisite detail!!  Shocked

These are worth the extra $$ in marking your floats. My numbers have stayed legible on my floats for a full season.
