Some eel pots are square and have a mini weight frame.  Some round eel pots are weighted.  I have a few that are weighted and I put them every so often on my underwater line.

Most of the guys around here use round eel pots with a piece of rebar the whole length of the pot for a weight. Most are also using longlines.

That's up here, but if they have to be individual in VA, according to the law Jack posted, then they must be a pain to fish with a line and float on each one.

When I first started eeling, I had 400 18"x18" pots with 1/2" rebar frames for weight that I fished 200 a day & pulled them by hand. I also fished 36" x 15" eel pots daily...In 1990. I went long lining with hydraulics fishing a 24"x9" pot...Life was much easier after that..I remember when Va stopped the long lines for eels & made you fish drop pots
