    Default Found: Shrimp pots out of Whittier

    We ended up snagging some extra shrimp pots Memorial Day Weekend while pulling ours in.

    The pots were found somewhere past chrochane and before main bay.

    If you can describe what they looked like, what type of setup it was and where they were placed we'd love to return them to their rightful owner.

    was there a buoy on them or a lost line on the bottom ? pretty big area to cover. What kind of pots? round, square, color of ropes? There is lots of lost/floating gear out there so some kind of info might help folks with lost gear to ask about this. Maybe a picture of how the bridles were attached would help folks ID them everybody seems to do their rigging a bit differently. New/clean looking pots and rope, any growth on rope like they have been lost for awhile.

    The pots were round and one of the ropes was green.

    I'm hesitant to give too much information, as I want to make sure the rightful owner does get it. If anyone thinks they might be theirs, they can private message me with just a little info on what their pots looked like or the general area, and we can go from there.

    Also, forgot to mention - There was no buoy on them. Forgot to check the rope later, but I'm guessing it was cut.

    Please explain exactly what they looked like and where exactly you found them. Because that's what mine looked like and that's where I lost them
    Rep coming your way.
