    If I'm planning to spend a couple of hours shrimping from a dock or bridge are these traps legal??

    I don't know, but I would check FWC Website for rules. Here is the link to the Shrimp starting point: https://myfwc.com/fishing/saltwater/recreational/shrimp/
    If your area is anything like my area, you could always just as an FWC officer if you see one. The ones by me are great and very helpful.

    I have found FWC Officers to be very helpful if asking questions, both fishing and hunting.

    Dont think those are legal. We use box traps made with 1/2 inch square construction wire along sea walls down in Melbourne
