Lobster pots

Not a thread about them getting wrapped around a prop for a change.

Just been speaking to a nice lady who has just started selling good quality pots at a low price.

May be of interest to a few on here - often wanted to dabble myself. Anyone used lobster pots before?

Yep, where I am you need a limited shellfish permit before you take anything, that includes diving or just walking along the beach and finding a lobster.

I've done it for years no probs up the north west of scotland, I only take a couple for the table .. thats all you'll get with about six pots on a 2 week fish due to overfishing

Those pots look a bit small to me IMO, more like a crayfish pot ?

the rules vary from area to area - I assume this would be your local SFC: http://www.swsfc.org.uk/home.htm

No licence required down here, but the commercial guys will pull your pots everytime unless they're in a very secret location. DHD and I had a couple of pots out two seasons ago, we almost got into a pot wars situation.

Only ever tried it once. Went on "holiday" to Scotland for a week. Took a RIB with me and thought it would be fun. Left the pot in the water for three days (being students at the time we improvised with a nutrigrain bar and bacon in a condom for bait). Caught a load of little crabs but nothing worthy of the dinner table I hear the submarine barrier in the Solent is good for lobsters?
