Default FL Blue Claw Crab Reg????

OK, I purchased 2 large crab traps a while ago and want to use them from my boat this week. They are each approximately 2.5ft long X 1.5ft wide X 6 inches high. From what I have been reading, these traps are illegal, and I cannot use them. Everything I have been reading claims that the base cannot be more than 1 ft wide, and the trap must be a pyramid style????

Please help......anyone out there know the answer...I do not want to have my boat taken away from me, or some hugh fine. Also, what is up with having to place a large "R" on the buoy?

I believe the R stands for recreational harvester.
