    Default Tanner Crab Pots

    I have a limited number of pots available if anyone is interested. 36x36x18 and they fold flat for storage. $150.00 each

    I have no experience with crabbing, are they usually at a similar depth/location as shrimp? Would these pots work well on the shrimp pot gear I bought from you last year (shrimp pots have worked great, have recommended them to multiple people)? It seems like it would be fun, weather permitting, I know it gets nasty out there in the winter.

    sure you can use the shrimp lines. From my limited experience catching tanners they seem to like mud instead of hard bottom like shrimp.

    Potbuilder, I forgot how to rig the pot to my lines and which side to rig on. I haven't used them in years but I wanted to get them in the water this season. Any pictures on rigging would be get. I have the ones you built above but have the PVC entrance with orange mesh. Thanks

    Attachment 98447bridle them on one of the sides that folds up. I'd move the clips 3 or 4 meshes in not on the 1st mesh like in the picture or just tie the bridle about 1/2 way up the side of the pot on one of the flap sides and use the other flap for a dump door.

    Should I use floating line or sinking line for the pot rigging? Thanks for the help!

    Floating to keep it off the bottom usually.
