Default Crab Pot

This is one big mother. I just bought it off the letgo app. I’ve realized how much bigger it is than my others. It’s 36” across with a 75’ shot of weighted line.

I’ll trade for a 30” similar pot. Otherwise $70.

Why are these only attached with the rope at one point? How do you make sure it lands on the bottom right side up? I've recently acquired one and I slowly let it sink to the bottom, then let out a bunch of line and give it a good tug to hopefully pull it right side up on the bottom. This trap consistently performs worse than my $15 Danielson traps. What am I missing?

The Danielsons is a great pot as long as they don't get sucked away by the current due to being light. As for side tying. I don't think it matters if it lands on the top or bottom since the crab come in from the sides. Half of my traps are set up with a single side tie and they work fine and pull much easier and the access door on top is easier to access as well.


cheers!!

The way to put these pots out is throw out buoys until all line is out then drop pot overboard. They are easier to pull as you are pulling them up on its side VS flat. Less surface area is your friend.

Plus the tension of the line will keep the top side up as it sinks and the current will pull the buoy/Line downcurrent setting it up correctly. While retrieving having it come up on its side it is easier to pull into the boat and less likely to scratch anything. One attachment point works. Good luck on the sale

Pots of this design are weighted on the bottom so they self right themselves on the fall. This pot has been destroyed by someone attempting to lighten it up.

They cut the weight bars out of it. Now it’s a bay pot.
