Wilson on Outdoors: Crabbing from shore with a launcher?

Q: While crabbing from shore with a rod/reel/crab snare, I was not having any luck. I noticed a guy on a paddleboard with a crab trap just past my maximum casting distance, and he was catching crabs no problem. Would it be legal to launch a crab snare, attached to the line of a rod and reel, with a catapult, trebuchet, water-balloon launcher or similar device? If only I could get it out 10 more feet or so, I feel I would have better success.
