Cray pots ( hope not many out there)

This wind will move them miles regardless of weight in them. Going to be many stuck , berried or missing.

Not a good start

Mon, 2017-10-16 17:56

This heavy wind is not a good start to the season. I agree with you little johnny there will be pots far and wide from where people put them in and I think a good place to start looking for them will be high and dry up on the beach.

 Did anyone else see the pot

Mon, 2017-10-16 18:01

 Did anyone else see the pot some genius has put in the channel out from hillaries already yesterday?  That is bound to go missing from someone's rope cutters, then it will be the accusation of pot stealers.

  Nothing like driving through the Gap negotiating breaking waves 60m either side of you as well as cray pots.

 went and checked my pots on

Mon, 2017-10-23 10:03

 went and checked my pots on sunday after a 8 day soak, all pots exactly where i left them. Only 1 pot had crays but that is due to my poor placement have moved pots around abit to try and fix that but overall i was happy to see that if they are weighted right they don't move.
