    Are you still into them? Have you been picking up any species of king crab?

    Nice job that looks like my gearshed pots.
    That is a great Tanner crab pot.
    Hang some fish carcasses in it and you are good to go.

    Well I built me a 3ft by 3ft by 20" pot with 2 neptune triggers. Gonna try a few spots and see what happens.

    I don't know about Ketchikan but in Homer deep and muddy is best.
    I like 350+ feet.
    I prefer the pyramid style pots the gear shed in Homer sells. Especially the 4x4 base size.

    Tanner crab near Ketch

    Anyone fish for tanners near Ketch? I'm thinking about building a few pots for them. I always seem to get some small ones in my shrimp pots. How would you target them down here? Water depth, bottom type etc...
