    Default New & Improved Rope Totes for Shrimping season 2

    If you guys remember last year i was trying to put together a rope tote to store shrimping lines. I've been working on a new and way better model for this season and received the prototype this morning. This one is 20"x20"x20 made of heavy duty fish brailer material, will stand upright by itself and has a couple of nice long handles on the sides and a bunch of grommets around the top to close it all up. My idea is for these to be multi use so when your not using them for rope they could be used to haul and wash dipnet fish, i'd say you could easily get 30-40 reds in one and the long webbing handles could be slung over a persons shoulder to haul it off the beach and i'm thinking the tote could be used to wash game meat in a creek ??? They are a heavy duty mesh material and i used to clean the ones is used gillnetting by just soaking them in soap and bleach then rinsing them off the side of the boat. Let me know your thoughts on them please. I have 5 600' coils of sink rope in the first picture.

    Would they hold 500 feet of 1/2 inch braid plus 40 feet of 5/16 inch chain? If they would I would certainly buy one.

    I'm interested Steve. They look nice and I really like the idea.
    Hold plenty of line yet fold up when not in use perfect for those of us with smaller boats.

    I'm 99% sure they will hold that with room to spare.

    I'm in for at least one. Getting the laundry baskets out of the way when the shrimp pots are down will help clear up the deck a lot!

    OK folks got a price on the rope totes They are going to be $90.00 each. Best i can do using the high quality materials in them. Did i tell ya they are Made in the USA. I ordered a small batch to see what the response would be, should have them in aprox 3 weeks. One thing i can say about them is you really need to see one in person to see the quality and weight of the material so if your in the neighborhood stop by the potbarn and take a look.

    If you had any in stock in July and wanted to move them, you might want to set up some enterprising young franchisee on the Kenai sand to sell them for you. They look great for dipnetters; you won't get a ticket for concealing your fish before recording them (a very common writeup) if they're stored in that tote.

    I had dipnetters use in mind when i designed them. The handles are long so with a person on each side the handles can be slung over their shoulders and its a easy carry of about 40 fish. Another member said to me they would be good for bleeding out fish next to the boat, just sling the handle over a cleat let the fish bleed out in the water and no mess in the boat. Should be good for the clammers also.
    Maybe i'll jest set camp by the beach and have some out for display ?? I'm real fast at net mending so maybe a on the beach net repair business will be forthcoming ??

    OK yeah, clams and fish bleeding too. You're starting to talk me into one....

    How about another completely different use? Take on camping trip to put the beer in. It'd be a great in-river under water beer cooler.

    There are only two access points for vehicles to arrive at south beach; cover them and 100% of the gazillion dipnetters on that shore will have seen you. And yes, a surprising number of them don't have the technical skills to either repair nor replace their own net bags.

    Best of luck. I love to see when a small local entrepreneur does well.
