Any tips for lobster potting from a rib?

Tin of cheap cat food with the label removed to make it shiney & a few holes punched in make good bait if no fresh baits at hand .also lasts a few days as they cant get into the tin eat it.
One advantage with a small rib or better sib you can often get into places where more traditional hard boat woulden't dare to venture near or into .
As said earlier you'll need to have an escape exit/door held with something that will rot to them escape should the pot be lost ( ghost fishing ) think in some areas undersize escape slots now have to be fitted too .

All of the above plus:

Tinned dog food works well although the best day I've had was towing in a conked out creel boat who paid in lobsters.
