crabs and fish migrate and move around ????

eels do bury themselves in the mud to avoid being eaten, so eels are extra sensitive

note - crab sellers will never tell you if those crabs come from the inner harbor - in the old days you could always tell a sparrows point crab

Thanks for all the replies. Ended up going over the bridge so stopped at anglers and picked up some razor clams and bait bags. Ran a little test with chicken necks tied to an 1100' trotline vs 20 topless traps with clams. Traps out did the line about 3 to one. So now to do the 1100' line with clams. Ended the day with a little less than a bushel but some large crab with the average 61/2 +.
Great day so going to stock up on clams and let taco bell buy the chicken necks.

Sorry to hijack this thread but it sounds like somedog's question was answered and I've got a question that I think the above posters can help with!

I'm interested in getting two commercial grade crab traps--the kind I can leave in the water to soak overnight. I have private property in the lower Potomac and am aware of the registration requirement and 100 yard rule. In fact, I get crabs all the time from my dock by dip netting at this spot and would like to work a little smarter not harder by leaving a pot out in the water http://www.eregulations.com/maryland...l-tributaries/

Can any of you recommend a good crab pot to purchase? I've been wanting to do this for several years but haven't pulled the trigger yet, in part because it's hard to tell which one to get. Thanks!

Those will work or try anglers just before the bridge off 50.
