Thread: The longest your shrimp pots have soaked?

  1. #1

    Default The longest your shrimp pots have soaked?

    What's the longest you've had you pots in the water? And when you pulled them, how did you do compared to a "normal" soak? Had to pull the boat out of the water last weekend without retrieving my pots, so curious what I'll find this weekend (hopefully) when I can get back out and get them. I use the bait buckets with the pellets, so I don't expect the bait to be all used up like it would be if I had only hung a fish in the pot.

    Usually after 3-4 days the take is less. They just swim out. If you have a problem like that, in the past I have called the trooper over here, and either pulled them out from another boat. Or, checked them once until I could get back in the water.

    I regularly soak mine for 48 hrs and do well. I don't know about longer than that. I also use the pellets (shrimp crack) and there is always bait left in the jug.

    We've had ours out for 3 weeks (or perhaps longer?) in the past. There were still shrimp in the pots, albeit a few less than might otherwise be expected.

    I leave them out all summer and pull them twice every weekend, weather permitting. Longest has been 2-3 weeks and similar situation as Brian mentioned. Seems like there are more octopus showing up so the pots may be empty.
