Anyone ever caught a Hag fish in a pot ,
The prehistoric eel type that can turn a bucket of water into a thick sticky wall paper type paste within a couple of mins some of it corrosive .

If you ever get one in a pot or creel , crabs & lobby's won't go near the pot again even if you do eventually get goo off they seem to sense the Hag fish and keep well away ,
I know one local fisherman that towed his contaminated pot behind his boat for a few weeks to try get rid of scent and goo but it never caught another crab or lobby .

If the OP goes back to one of my earlier posts (the both quotes above are of relevance) he may have noticed that our preferred catch uses a fair range, right up to dead low water line ... commercial boats cannot access this type of area, often... ...moving on ... Some lay strings of blind pots in deeper water just to give the impression that the area is fished , just to keep others out too

Its a shame a float couldn't be engineered to pop to the surface on command or after a set period...

Even though we have plenty of lobsters in our sea, over here in Canada it is impossible to fish for Lobster, totally and absolutely illegal.

If you get caught fishing for those, scuba diving or lobster pots, the local fishermen will take care of you and once they are done they'll call the fisheries police and EVERYTHING will be seized (your car-boat-equipment-etc...) + a very large fine. I heard they even have the right to rape you on the hood of your car if they catch you...

I would love to fish lobster, must be a thrill, but it's unthinkable here. The only way is to embark with a licensed fisherman and watch.
