  • What really goes on in a Shimp pot

    Bear with me. Here is a you tube link to an underwater video of a couple weeks ago of one of my shrimp pots I dropped in Prince William Sound.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Su0L...ature=youtu.be

    At around 6:50 you can see a tanner crab moving by
    At around 8:20 you can see how a shrimp enters your pot

    I am working on the lighting for the next video and there is a secondary light off to the right that is not as bright. Seems some shrimp like the light, some do not. Also how much other action there is.

      Awesome video....something many of us have been wanting to see.
      Look forward to your next video.

      Amazing how much action there is, especially the lil stuff cruising around. Sure doesn't take long for them to accumulate in the pot.
      Soooo, how deep is this and what kind of camera?

        Around 350'. It is a GoPro with a special housing from Group B Inc. Hardest part was finding a light that can supposedly go that deep. Using Ladner pots from Donalson's.

          Nice job. Now I understand the social life of shrimp better. :topjob:

            Wow, really cool. It would be neat to see a little wider field of view, something that shows the entire pot. Don't know if that camera has that capability but it would sure be cool to have the whole pot illuminated. Really look forward to your next one. Thanks!

                Sweet video. There are some youtube videos down south that shouw shrimp and crab pots. Lot shallower water and very light so you can see stuff that goes by the pot. There is even a seal that pops in to check things out.

                  Cool vid, thanks for sharing.
                  Why do you use that kind of bait jar? Seems like the kind with lots of holes would do better.

                      Sand fleas is a big reason for smaller holes. They will empty your can quick with large holes

                        Going to try again this weekend for some more video. Here is a link to another one on You Tube. This was the first try. The light went out but it show you how long it takes to get to the bottom and how soon Shrimp get in. Turn your volume up to hear it hit the bottom at 6:00.

                            Likely that is when the light went out.

                              Cool videos. How about glow sticks as light sources?
