    Default The correct answer to "are pop-up releases legal for shrimp pot buoys"

    We talked about using "pop-ups" timed galvanic releases for shrimp gear last week in another thread and i made a call into the top guy for enforcement at fish & game, i've talked with him before about things i have thought about doing to my shrimp & crab gear, always run stuff by him before i change anything in my gear. Anyway i asked him about the pop-ups and he called me back today and the answer is
    THEY ARE NOT LEGAL, your buoys got to be on the surface. Case Closed.

    Good to know. I've never used them, but I have a friend that was talking about it. I'll pass this along.
    I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.
