Make sure you cheap nasty pot has a rotting line or other type of closure that won't keep trapping things if your pot is washed away / lost.

How have you knocked the moon out of orbit? surely if there is a middle of the night low tide there is a midday one too?

Middle of the night is 3am which means there is a ~3.30pm tide following it. So if you place it at 2.30pm on day 1, the next low for retrieval will be 3.00am (not great for 5 year old) on the other hand place it at 3am he could do the retrieval... I suspect its staying in 24 hours isn't it...!

Well, I gather from past posts here the collapsible ones might not be much good for decent sized catches. I'm not concerned with getting them in the pot so if they are tidlers that's fine.. Its the adventure for the wee man not the dinner...

So long as it doesn't dry you can leave out for more than one tide.

Hi shinyshoe, here's my kids catching crabs a few years ago on the very loch your'e talking about, lower milovaig pier, they caught plenty of wee crabs off the pier, and off the rocks we caught some really good sized pollack, we tried a lobster pot off the rocks but caught nothing, however you can see by the kids faces, they had a great time.

Gerry.

When I say 'pull', the local fishermen around here may relieve you of your catch, not your pots.
wrong post.

Yes, off the rocks to the west, that's where we caught the pollack as well, we stayed there for a few days, and toured all over Skye for 2 weeks, Iv'e been up that way many times, but first time for the kids, they loved it, so will you.

Been to Skye 4 times, but only spent a total of 5 days on the island. Twice visited Neist Point Light but didn't have time to explore round about. Off to a newly built holiday home positioned specifically for the view.

Aim is that pirate mad 5 year old will hopefully see a tall ship or 3 sailing past on the way from Belfast to Norway....

I don't do holidays (they stress me out!) Yet am oddly excited about this one...

You're at the wrong end of country pal. There are enough square riggers and tricornes down this way to drive a fella crackers.
