Thanks looking forward to catching and cooking something crab or lobster if not muscles cooked right are still a meal fit for a king .
I will try my best not to piss other boat uses off !

Okay a bit facetious ! I am not big on social media in fact this is the only forum I have used . I bought my first rib six months ago this forum has been a fantastic pool of knowledge .

I love the fact that people can say what they think and back it up with constructive advice . if I was the type to make up my own milk bottled , lorry stringed lobster trap in the middle of the English Channel would I be the type to continually show my lack of sea knowledge out on the forum to be shot at .

I have found healthy debate but with balance even if opinions differ on some of my other steep forum learning curves . I just felt on this occasion that 'the grocer' was giving no advice on how to carry out a legal pastime responsibly but would happily steel my lobster pots which I have just ordered with my hard earns money if I get it wrong .

Well everyone is entitled to their opinion as always, just use common sense .... if you were to dump a string across a harbour mouth or known landing area .. sure .. your going to attract attention for all the wrong reasons. Where I fish, traffic is non existent, so all my methods are perfectly fine, and if I caught anyone 'recycling' my gear I wouldnt be very happy about it and I'm not talking big numbers either, I'm just pleased to continue an art that I have learned from those that have gone before me, and I am perfectly entitled to do it, its not commercial, just a bit of pleasure like any other fishing so enjoy
