So its okay to harvest females with a commercial license.

Again, sorry for the confusion.
I'm rather sorry that my post was confusing, but the regulation is confusing.
* No females can be harvested by recreational crabbers in the Chesapeake.
* Commercial crabbers have catch limits on females, but no size limits.
* Ocean side Bays have no limits on females.

I never try to figure out the rational with fishing rules--too many politics--it's enough for me to simply keep the facts straight. I can tell you that DNR stops of recreational crabbers are very common in some parts of the Bay--I see them weekly is Deale.
