if you want to fish pots for a couple of tides without rebaiting or to stop your boat getting messy , a tin of cat food with its label taken off [makes it shiney ]and a few holes punched in keeps them interested . and i would be very wary of pulling other peoples pots in for whatever reason , some i know put or embed a few old fish hooks a few feet down from the marker bouy just about far enough for an unwary person to start to put their hands on ,,,,cant be very nice with a 3 or 4 hooks embedded in your hand in a moving boat and your anchored to the sea bed ,,,,and if theres an inquest into it ,,,,someone must have snagged the rope when fishing .though one big
advantage when potting with a rib or better a sib ,you can get into waters that other hard boaters wouldent dare go near for fear of bumping the rocks .,,, and if you do have any pots or creels make sure that the door or part of the netting is fastened with some thing that will rot after a week or so to let the stuff inside escape should it get lost to the sea ,,,nothing more sad than fishing gear still catching and for it never to get recovered . mart

3 Months for delivery though, not looking great for this season.

RIBase
Caught 3 lobsters from one pot in 2007 on the west coast of Lewis. Put one back as it was undersized. Pots everywhere, but they're very well marked.

I found my pot - which had been discarded. Needed a little work to mend holes, but works a treat. To bait, I normally use a mackeral, slice up the stomach and secured in a netted bag.

Location-wise, I tend to go for areas I know I can get to, even if it's blowing a gale. Rocky inlets with plenty seaweed. Lee side of an island is ideal.

I normally mark the bouy with the house number - so they know it's a local boat.

Worth checking, because if she does have them in stock I could shift a few.
