    Not sure if this is intended or not but when you cut up a stone crab no matter what weight it only gives one meat and the meat isn't stackable. Just cut up 3 of them with weights between 20 and 60 some stones and all gave just one meat.

    Also, has anybody managed to catch a stone crab without using bait? Just curious if i'm wasting my time only doing traps in the lost lands without bait.

    Think i'll keep trying to catch them without the bait then, it gives me something to do while i'm getting my crabs and lobsters. I try and do a line of 100 crab traps every time I get to Papua on my fishmonger rounds.

    I do it on the boat and take them out 50 at a time to place while sailing. When I pick them up, whatever I can't hold drops to the boat deck and I pick them up once I empty out room in my pack for them. I usually end up loosing about 15 of them doing it this way but I usually only have about 6-10 empty traps and the ones with stuff in them rarely have only one thing in them.
