    Default Shrimp Pot Placement

    Going to spend a week in Valdez the second week of july. Ive never used shrimp pots before and would like some ideas on how to use them. What kind of places do you look for to put them in , depth, bait and such.

    Look for drop off that are rocky. I like to shrimp between 600-650 feet. to me I have done better in not catching trash IE fish, starfish and other stuff. Bait I use cat food shrimp pellets soaked in herring oil. Once the pots are set I leave them between 4-6 hours.

    Not a lot of shrimp, but still fun.

    250'-600' in the steepest country you can find. I don't think bait is critical, people use fish carcass', herring, cat food, comercial shrimp bait, they all work.
