  • Shrimp pots

    Could someone let me know about the best and possible lowest in price for shrimp pots? Round? Square?
    Reliable brand? Thank you.

        One thing to consider is the size of your boat and how/where you'll transport them. I don't think we'll ever get a consensus on round vs. sq. but I'd say the two options to consider are Steve's square pots, and the round Ladner pots. I've used Ladners for several seasons I find they are effective for catching shrimp and they stack nicely and I can toss them in my inflatable I carry on top of my pilothouse to keep them out of the way. I did manage to loose one last year and will likely replace it with one of Steves collapsable pots, so I can see what I'm missing

        Pots are just a small part of the expense (puller, lines, buoys) and I'd say there really isn't that much price difference between the various brands though some of the ones carried by the large outdoor stores appear to me less durable, and in some cases more expensive.
        Those that are successful in Alaska are those who are flexible, and allow the reality of life in Alaska to shape their dreams, vs. trying to force their dreams on the reality of Alaska.

        If you have a tenuous grasp of reality, Alaska is not for you.

            Another vote for Steve's pots and gear. I run his collapsible pots and they are great as I have a tiny boat. His bait has work great for me as well.

              Wonderful!! Really appreciate it. I have a smaller boat. It's a 19 1/2 Alumaweld Stryker. I'm wanting to attach the puller to my Scotty basemount from my downriggers. Few feet from the back. I will keep researching on regulations and only get what I need for my family. The collapsible ones sound brilliant. I will give Mr. Steve a call, sounds like he'll hook me up. You guys are awesome and really appreciate this forum. Much gratitude for the feedback.
