I put out traps for blues and stonys
Posted by: Reefmonkey on Dec-07-12 5:27 PM (EST)
down here on the Texas coast. Different design, but same bait. Could be that a human poacher took your crabs, but I wouldn't expect him to mess with the bait. I am having trouble picturing the bait setup. Would it just fall out if the trap was opened?
I'll sometimes come to find an empty trap with no bait, but in my case I believe it is usually pinfish or other baitstealers.
