C--link.jpgAnyone ever try using these C-links on their crab/shrimp buoy line?
C-Link.jpgI have Steve's pot toggles on my shrimp pots but was thinking that to connect the poly to the groundline on my buoy line these might be a handy way to fasten them together.
Also could serve as a good way to add an extra shot of line line if I thought I needed it.
They only go together one way because of how they are cut and I think it would be highly unlikely they could ever come apart on their own.
I bought a few to try from the gear shed in Homer.
They are a pretty stout looking stainless steel. The ones I bought are flat on the sides.
I like the idea of not having to use tools to open or close them and they really can't wear out. No springs or threads to wear out either.
I saw them(much larger version than I bought) being used on Deadliest Catch a few years ago on a boat that was running multiple pots on a string fishing very deep for brown king crab and thought they might be something for me to try.
Any thought or opinions?
