Mentioned this in another thread and figured I better move it over here before a mod rightfully did. Took the last tunnel to Whittier Wed. evening and it was 0-dark-thirty when I got to Pigot Bay. I cruised the area for awhile locating buoys so I wouldn't set on top of someone else's gear. I had my gear set a little before 1 am. I anchor up mid bay very close to the head of the bay as its usually calm and the bugs aren't too bad. I hit the sack but my back was killing me at about 4 am so I decide to get up and try to stretch it out. About that time, a boat comes around the point at the entrance to the bay and turns on the spotlight. He goes from area to area where I know there are pots set. I figure he's pulling everyone's gear. It's pitch black out so I'm not going to attempt a confrontation and I know I'd never get his registration numbers in the dark. So at 6 am, I go pull my gear and have 11 shrimp from 5 pots. I have Potbuilder's folding pots and clearly they had been worked over. The clips were in different places and one clip was missing as well as 2, 3lb. weights. I also use 2 bait containers per pot and all of my home made ones were gone. They are too big to fit though the tunnels and they were well secured. I thought shrimp thieves just stole shrimp and hoped that no one would know they had been there. This was a little too obvious. Kinda did number on my morning!
