Traps and Pots

traps and pots for shellfish like lobster and crabs

Pots or traps are often designed specifically for one type of fish or shellfish. Traps and pots are generally baited and equipped with one or more funnel openings, and they are weighted to rest on the bottom. Pots or traps can be fished singularly or in small groups, and each has a buoy at the surface to mark location.
