I am also working in the same location for ghost pots and am having the same results. We recovered 50 pots tue. and only one was worth keeping .  The pots are so far down in the mud that they are not a problem.  Some of those pots are so far down in the mud that the crowns are covered.


WAIT WAIT WAIT.  Your location says upper bay.  Which part?  Lower upper, mid upper, upper upper?  What river do you run out of.

I get those two confused myself a lot. I know like you said, one's a big game cougar hunter, and one drives a Ford with black smoke, that ain't broke. laugh laugh laugh

Ford, smoke ain't broke and "Cougarhunter" are both Ray's MO.... you had one guy there...  Breeze is another story I'm sure...

yeah, I learned that 'ghost pots' are not the long term killers that cca and others make them out to be, and that once lost they quickly stop catching and become habitat.  Skippy and his toilet fish cronies are flat out wrong as usual

Don't own a boat that you put 1200+ hours a year on, huh? Wink

Not bad for winter work, but I'd starve at that rate working all year.  Smiley

Sorry to say this but the bay would be better off just leaving the stuff where it is.  The ratio of trapped animals to debris gathered was miniscule, so the lost pots aren't killing many animals and the amount of marine growth attached shows that the lost pots have become habitat for thousands of other animals.

No, it's not enough to survive, but it sure helps when there is nothing else coming in.  As a side bonus, it sure was nice to be on the water again, even if it was cold and rough.  Broke skim ice to get out yesterday.

It seems you are a victim of cca/biased press/dnr propoganda.  The press release makes it sound like every thing that was brought up was a pot which was killing consistantly.  This is far from the truth.  Most of what was brought up was traps that were no longer functioning, more often just a piece of wire.
There's another guy that was involved in this job also.  I'm sure he'll confirm this,  I think I have a picture of a typical pot.  I'll try to post it soon.
