Looking for advice from any of the other guys who fish pots on this forum.
I went and picked up a pot shrimp permit for here in SE AK. I've got a line on a stack of 42" Lander pots, so I'll probably be using those. I'll be fishing out of my 35' Delta boat. It'll be strings of 10 pots, 10 strings, and a rather intense/short 3 week season. Pulling daily. Plan on getting some IFQ in the future too, so would like to use the hauler for that too. (smaller scale)
What kind of hydraulic pot puller do you guys like? I've got some heavy duty aluminum davits.. Do you like a hanging hauler? Or one mounted directly to the davit? What's the advantage/disadvantage of the two? 10" or 12"? Do you hang the hauler from the end of the davit? The guy I bought my permit from used a 10", and said it was more than enough.. but looking for other perspectives, as I want to get the right stuff, the first time around. What type of hydraulic controls/lines do you like? Hydraslave? Kholstrand?
Thanks guys.. I'm new to the pot stuff, on a larger scale.
