    Just came back from Tomales Bay where my wife and I were using 6 rods equipped with crab snares from our anchored boat. Ended up with 10 dungies and several rock crabs.

    Re: Gear for Crabs

    Okay Fire. I have my answer.

    Thanks CDK and Onelilcrazyazn

    Ocean rods are unlimited for fin fish and crabs. 2 rod restriction fishing rod if crabbing from pier.

    NOTE: The folding crab trap often referred to as The Hawk is NOT legal in Calif Sure glad I only bought one!

    Thanks for you answers. Even DF and G said the regs were vague on crabs and method of take.

    I believe you can use more than 2 pole out in the ocean unless you are on a pier or jetty which is limited to 2. But you should read the book to be safe
    dont take life to serious, let go and smile to see what your missing out on

    Gear for Crabs

    Greetings All.

    If I am snaring for crabs am I limited to the number of rods being used at the same time? Location would be from Bodega Bay north to Oregon border,

    Thanks

    Just George
