The one bit he didn't mention, is that losing that expensive SS trap is a killer for crabs. In Washington you must secure the hatch with bio-degrable string so that if you do lose the trap it will stop fishing. Otherwise the dead crabs self bait the trap and the cycle continues for 10 year or more until the trap fully rusts out. Check out the Fish & game pages for Texas and Alabama where during closed seasons they removed over 2,000 lost traps each.
Also Charlie left out my favorite crab "catching" technique which is to put a fish head on a line and toss it out. Wait for the line to "walk" and then slowly pull it in. Near the surface net the crab! Well that's the way it was supposed to work, and it sort of does, well it did for Carolina blue claw crabs. And its great fun for the kids.
Anyway another great book by Charlie.
I recommend it.
