    Default Floating Pots La Buena Vida

    A bit late here, but I drove past a bouy labeled "La Buena Vida" in port wells last Saturday. We were in 1180 feet of water, the bouy was not sitting very deep but it was afloat I think. I left it there and did not pull it.

    might of been a cut off and was just drifting with the sink rope just holding it upright.

    that was my guess, but I didn't try to pull it.

    I have seen several buoys that I thought were floating pots, all in 1000+ ft of water. One in particular was in the mouth of Blackstone. We were just running back in there to check our pots so when I came back I checked that the bouy was in the same spot. There are a few people who shrimp that deep I guess.
