Crab Reels
Crab reels were long lines baited with bull noses used by commercial crabbers in the Sea Islands of South Carolina until the mid to late 1960's when the crabbers switched to wire box crab pots.The reels were used to wind up the long lines from the boats to keep them straight and ready for a new day's work.
