    You can definately get them before 110, I dont think any of the pie fish/crabs have a high requirement to get. Try letting your traps sit longer 3-4 cycles of bobs even if you lose more traps. Bait use lasts as long as the trap is out so that allows you get get 3-4 uses per bait use per trap even with some sinking. Try that and you should be pulling them up in no time. Hope that helps and good luck.

    I managed to catch one before I hit 105 using no baits, but I haven't caught one since I hit 110. It's quite odd, actually.

    Do you got it after first *bob* or you leave traps for longer time?

    I have crabbers at 110 skill and 115 skill.. I crab daily and have had upwards of 3000 each of the named crabs at a given time. This includes me selling quite a few on a daily basis. I have yet to catch a stone crab and all my crabbing is done in the lost lands. I currently have over 72K of the unamed crabs and lobsters in storage if that gives you an estimate of how many total traps I have done without catching a single stone crab.

    I had heard of people catching them before patch 69 but no one has reported since then..
