Are Baited Crab Snares legal in Florida?
For those who don't know, you cast this thing out on the end of a fishing rod and the mono line "snares" the legs of crabs that get close.
I've been reading the regs for blue crab, stone crab and lobster. It seems like it's legal for blue crab, since you can hook & line. Most likely lobster if the mono is thick enough. However, I'm unsure about stone crab, because it's not specifically listed as a legal device nor an illegal device. It's a judgement call on if this device can "harm" a stone crab if snared improperly. My gut instinct is if a lobster snare is legal, this device should also be legal?
