recreational crabbers chicken neckers Used primarily with traps trotlines and hand lines Crab Pot or Crabpot A crabpot is a large square trap usually two feet square on all sides constructed out of galvanized or PVC coated wire The pot has two internal chambers The bottom chamber or downstairs consists of two or four entrance funnels known as throats which make it easy for a crab to enter but difficult to exit In the center of the bottom chamber is the bait box The top chamber is the holding area known as the parlor or upstairs Trapped crabs instinctively swim upwards and into the parlor through oblong funnel shaped holes cut into the floor making it difficult for the crab to swim back down Used primarily by commercial watermen crabpots are baited and left unattended in the water for up to 24 hours or longer Not to be confused with a crab trap Crab Trap A hand activated trap used to catch crabs Usually made of metal or PVC coated wire a trap is a cube about one foot square on all sides some traps are 6 inches high Traps have two or four hinged doors that swing down flat on the bottom exposing the bait When the trap is pulled to the surface the taut line pulls the doors closed

on their trotlines Because eel is considered a delicacy in Europe and Asia its price has risen sharply thus making it prohibitive to use as bait Hand Line or Handline A length of line to which a piece of bait is tied The bait is lowered into the water and is checked every so often to see if a crab is feeding on it If so the line is gently pulled to the surface where the crab is dip netted Jimmy Pot

and lowered to the bottom the trap lies flat on the bottom When the trap is pulled to the surface the two rings form a deep pocket out of the netting which traps the crab Salted Eel Eel that has been immersed in a salty brine solution which acts as a preservative See also Eel Scap or Scapping The act of crabbing by using a net alone
