    Default Getting Started Shrimping

    Well I've picked up some of the basics but still have a couple questions.
    What size and how many buoy's, I thinking 1ea A-3 (17") per set. 1 set of 3 pots and 1 set of 2 pots.
    What is the best way to label your buoy's? Permanent marker or paint. What about your phone number?
    I have 5 of the stack-able pots and I'm thinking of using a mushroom anchor between the last pot and the buoy rather then weighting each pot.

    Any suggestions will be appreciated.

    What is the best way to label your buoy's? Permanent marker or paint. A jumbo sharpie works good but those paint pens last longer What about your phone number? Why? If somebody wants to contact you then they can get the info from the AK numbers on the buoy, i don't like putting out to much info for the world to see.
    I have 5 of the stack-able pots and I'm thinking of using a mushroom anchor between the last pot and the buoy rather then weighting each pot. I like the weight in the pots, no use hauling something up that won't catch any shrimp !! Give me a call if you have any questions.
