Marker bouys

So without going mad but without annoying other boat users what marker bouy would you recommend I buy for single lobster pot set .
They seem to vary from 11.00 up to the silly . I will also have to pay for delivery as there don't appear to be many shops selling them near derbyshire !!

As previously said will be using them near the coast from jura and mull so I think the all singing ones with flags may be a bit of an overkill

Marker bouys

I use green 9" single eye poly bouys on my pots

The reason I use green is nobody else uses green around here so its easy spotted should it move.

The problem with only putting one lobster pot down is that it generally gets moved by the tide as there is not much weight to 'anchor' it to the spot that you leave it in. Green is not an easily recognisable colour either, better to have something bright

I have got more than one but assumed that there was not much point in having two next to each other . Also thought whilst learning if I suffered a loss it would only be one .

I have two lobsters and two creel so would it be worth setting two say one of each type ?

If you only put one down it isnt normally heavy enough to stay in the same place, I normally put them down in threes, with rope tied to each pot, at least the depth of the water apart, this way you are not pulling up two pots at the same time. It dowsnt matter really, lobster or creel, around the north wales coast at the minute we are getting loads of spider crabs and we are using salted down rotten dogfish for bait

As a non fisherman I will be mostly using mackerel as that's all i can catch . Anything edible in the pots will be a bonus . From other threads I have read I thought male lobsters were territorial but then do I know

We pulled a loose 12" fluorescent buoy out of the Irish Sea and it was visible from 2 or 3 miles. Easy to find.

Most of them around here are containers ranging in size and color from 5 / 10 litre.

Footballs in nets tied on are common as is a big lump of polystyrene with a bamboo cane in.
