Just a heads up to those shrimping in PWS ... the commercial boys are out near Esther Rock for a Chum opening. Set my pots Sunday night, no boats in sight. Back Monday morning to find 50 bowpickers around my set. My buoy was nowhere to be found, I can only assume they sank it (I use weighted pots, 1200' of line and a small anchor, so it didn't float off).
On a related note, anybody have experience dragging for lost gear? What set up did you use?
