Crab Trap - Wood Island Lighthouse
There are various methods to catching crab, crab pots being the most cost and time effective. They are much sturdier and can be used for many years over than using dip nets. You can catch much more crab using pots, (crab traps), also, which can save a lot of time and hassle.
This trap would have had bait installed in the middle on the bottom area and then it would have been put in the ocean. The grabs can crawl up the sides and slide into the trap, but cannot get out due to the plastic slippery top.
