I was going to write the same thing Rick. if you buy the basic square crab trap add a little lead to the trap doors this will stop the doors to flop open in current and allowing the males to escape. best depth is btwn 30 -50ft at low tide (drop time) pu nets after High tide. Use lead lines. If only on legal male when you haul out, through back in with cage and send her down, and feast on the 2nd haul.
I have a collapsible pyramid net. has worked well for me. Bad experience with expensive crab nets… they get stolen. But they do store better. It’s a “crab shoot”!
