Ring Nets: For novice crabbers ring nets provide easy use. These circular-shaped nets lay flat under water and then form a temporary wall when being pulled upright
Pyramid and Star Traps: These traps lay flat under water, and then close as a pyramid or star shape that traps the crab within
Crab Pots and Cages: These are the most complex and reliable means of catching crab. These enclosed traps allow crabs to enter through small doors, which can then be closed.
Casual crab fisherman might opt for a trap that features netting and a reinforced upper ring for easily bringing in your catch and retrieving crabs without hassle.
Experienced crabbers choose large crab pots with multiple entrances. Choose a vinyl-coated steel frame with mesh ramps. A steel frame ensures durability and ramps encourage crabs to walk in.
If you’re worried about your bait remaining secure, look for a pot featuring an internal cage for strategic bait placement. Located in the center of the cage, this feature draws crabs in without risk of your bait falling out.
