OK, I've got to ask what is a trot line and how do you catch crab with it? I've never heard the term before. We in the PNW use traps, each license is allowed two and you can put them anywhere you want. Ours are commercial sized pots and measure about 36" in diameter. Our record is over 20 keepers (over 6.25", male, approx. 2 lbs ea) in a single pot.
