Comments about Willapa Marine Deluxe Crab Snare:
I sell this product and was curious on how it would work in our area. I live in Charleston SC and we have blue crab here with a few stone crab. I was able to get a few crab but I know the levels of crab in our water and it missed a bunch of crab. I decided to omit the snare's and just use the cage in the center of a drop net and it is perfect for adding weight and containing your smaller peices of bait like chopped up fish. The crab do not seem to care that the bait is in a cage.
I would suggest that if you are to use this product, I would use it from an elevated area so that you pull up on the trap and cinch the snare versus dragging it along. I would also use quick, fast, short tugs on the line to cinch the snare also. I have seen videos online of west coast crabs being caught on snare traps but do not think they are well suited for the smaller blue crab and elusive stone crab.
