"Warden, you don't understand; these are my pet lobsters, Millie and George. I keep them in an aquarium at home, but they've grown so much that it's getting a little cramped. So, once a week, I bring them down here and let them swim around where there'a a little space, then I whistle for them, they come back, and they're OK in the aquarium until next time."

"I gotta see this. I've never heard of anyone with lobsters as pets."

The guy pick up the bucket, and with a heave, says "Okay guys, you have a half hour of freedom! Enjoy!" and tosses the lobsters into the bay.

Ten minutes later, the warden says "Alright, I've seen enough. Call them back."

"What?"

"Your lobsters. Call them back."

"What lobsters?"

I thought it is open season on lobster pots, I had my best season ever this year, got two lobsters out of my pot before it got stolen. Usually they are gone the next day when I go back to my pot. I got four lifts out of this one before it was nicked.

dont give in, the buzz you get when you finally catch one is worth all the effort, dont know if they are still about down there but most of the potters up here have brought their pots in for the season now

Well between you and me ... < *looks left* *looks right* > half the reason your pot probably got nobbled was because it had a ton of markings on it asking for it ... (sadly there are unscroupulous individuals everywhere these days) maybe not a popular view on here.. because I know why honest boaters want them marked .. but some of these 'career' fishing 'gentlemen' take great umbridge at the slightest infringement on their livelihoods .. like one lobsters gonna break the bank ?

Now that you have had the benefit of the community advice here .. probs best to make up your own mind on what you do next ... hopefully your next post will be with a trophy

Presumably you need to find somewhere a bit quieter to leave it (where the potters are less likely to find it). Plus I assume you marked its position on a GPS. So you could share the pos with others to let them watch over it / search for it when it goes astray.

Any value to puting a notice on it that says it has a position tracker fitted? Or can a location be found that has a web cam looking over it...

Also any value to "making friends" with the local potting community - where would they want you to leave a pot? Make it clear its a bit of fun not for money, once a month for a couple of days, you know not to take females with eggs etc. Make them part of the project :;-):
