If its steep shelving rock and tangle you need to get the pot close to the shore, so close infact you need to be alert on the motor, especially if you get big swells like we do . If its a sandy bottom, look for tangle with a patch in it .. your fish likes to hide, so .. if you see a patch drop your pot right into it .. Oh and if your coast is rocky take a big knife for pot recovery, incase it catches a conger, which up our way will fill the pot, and remove your finger when you try and relieve the chap of his new home

Also .. set in the morning and leave for 24hrs only .. your man seems to prefer going in at night, but they can find there way out of that type of pot if you leave them for too long

With a top entrance like that,the closer to dawn you haul it more chance you will have,if the Sun gets to the pot they will get out of that entrance quicker than you could believe.Best of luck.

I was once told by one of our Icelandic members that they used dead squirel in their lobster pots. the riper the better...

I have never tested this theory however.

I would stick to keeping it close inshore and away from where the commercial guys drop their pots BTW, they don't really like newbies dropping pots on their turf.

They don't have squirrels in Iceland. Do they import them 'specially?

Why use floating line ? It the biggest pain in the backside for any boats ....if you miss the mark you still hit the endless bloody floating rope 15 yards off to the side !

I'm assuming you see the old 1L plastic milk bottle covered in weed that is near invisible anyway !!!

Lot's of people use a can of cat food with holes punched in it to let out the scent....mainly for hoop netting though because the sea lion tend to want to some in and steal your bait. So, zip ties and cat food in a can prevents that! (probably not applicable to you because the whatever bait you use will be deep in the trap)

Must be nice being able to just drop a trap. Here, when going for lobster, you need a very expensive commercial permit to trap (of which there are limited numbers and don't come up for sale very often). We have to grab lobster by hand...no sticks, spears, nooses, etc.!!!
