Crab is a year-round activity on Vancouver Island, which means that every time you come to the island, you can catch fresh red crabs.

-If fishing from a dock or shore, tag the operator`s name on the line where the trap or ring is attached at the other end. -If you are not fishing from a wharf or shoreline, the operator`s name must be marked or securely attached to a float or buoy located on the surface of the water and equipped with a line that attaches it to the trap or ring. Only one name may appear on the float or buoy. It is recommended that you provide your phone number. -Floats used to mark shrimp fishing gear must remain floating on the surface of the water and be sufficiently visible to avoid any danger to navigation. Use a non-floating line or attach a weight to the line, as floating lines pose hazards to navigation. Household plastic pitchers, bottles and pieces of polystyrene tend to deteriorate and sink and are not recommended as swimmers. -If only two crab traps are attached to a bottom line, you can mark the baseline with only one buoy.

All individual traps must be marked with a buoy. -It is illegal to use more than two rings, diving nets or traps or a combination of these to fish crabs. -It is illegal to use a template, gaffe, spear, rake or any other sharp instrument to take crabs. -Do not adjust speeds in navigation channels. -Mechanical devices can be used to recover traps. -The shell must remain attached to the crab until it is eaten or arrives at your usual residence.

If your bait disappears, attract more crabs, even if the bait is gone, the crabs are trying to escape the center of their lives.

When the ring net is quickly pulled to the surface, it forms a basket in which the crabs are temporarily trapped. These networks are maintained frequently, approximately every 15 to 30 minutes. Ring nets can be used by boats, docks, jetties and jetties.
