    Hi Gary. I think Rich meant that there's a lot of stuff (requirements) that aren't included on DNR's site. That in and of itself is misleading. The comprehensive list can only be found in COMAR. Take care - See ya

    It's probably just as accurate as asking 6 different NRP officers and getting 6 different answers! I'm ready to crab Herb.....................Gary

    Me too! Im plan to start this year at 5am and looking forward to catching plenty of female peelers to sluff out.
    If you don't go, you won't know and you gotta have bait in the water!
    I have terminal Crabiteis and there is no hope.

    OK just because I like to be a pain in the A..

    Under float requirements they refer to round or spherical shapes must be 12" in diameter. Understood

    If not round or spherical they must be 12" Long x 10" Wide. Understood.

    What shape is an antifreeze bottle or a Tide bottle? It aint round and it ain't a sphere, I'd say rectangular of some type. Agreed?

    OK under that scenario I am legal to use a 12"x10" flat piece of brown plywood but illegal to use a yellow antifreeze container or bright orange Tide Bottle? Even a round piece of plywood could be 12" in diameter and still be legal without being a sphere.

    One day they'll figure it out, one day........
