Yep. We drug the bottom for a few hours where I last saw my pots. I used the drag as I built it with the chain tied to the front and 1200' of lead line. It drug across the bottom just fine. We pulled it around a few miles at about 3 MPH and it felt like it did just fine. Pulled it up a few times and it was nice and shiny with some mud stuck in the cracks here and there. Didn't find any pots, but I'll give it one more try before the end of season. Don't wanna try after it closes and pick up a ridiculous fine by AWT for shrimping out of season.
