They definitely speed up the baiting process. Buddy and I did 2400' in 35 minutes with him grabbing clams and me popping bags open and pulling line. Used to take almost 2 hrs before

Overall seems to be working well though and definitely speeds up the baiting time with not having to take the bag off and on.

OMG. I did 2 lines before my buddy did 1 the old way. I'm impressed. The test is tomorrow if they come out right when I lay. Great day. Bags ran nice. Had 1 that got stuck in net and lost it. Caught 6 bushels

Crab Trotlining 101

Crab trotlining is a method of catching crabs using a long line called a “trotline.” The trotline is anchored at both ends and sits on the bottom, typically in shallow areas like creeks, bays, or marshes where crabs are known to inhabit. The baits are usually fish, eels, chicken necks or razor clams spaced out at regular intervals along the line. The baits are either tied directly to the trotline or suspended by a short snood. The crabs favorite bait, razor clams, cannot be tied to the line and are put into mesh bait bags.

As the crabs move along the bottom of the waterway, they are attracted by the scent and come the across the bait. Once they grab onto the bait they do not want to let go. The waterman starts at one end with the line coming up and over a roller as the boat moves slowly down the line, dip netting crabs as they reach the surface.

Crab trotlining is a popular method of crabbing because it allows for a large number of crabs to be caught at a relatively low cost as compared to crab pots.
