I currently have galvanized 1.5 x 1.5 Crab Pots that I put in the water for a bit to knock the shine off them and to get ready for paint. I have always heard to just stick with the " Flexabar " paint for dipping/painting. But I have heard of people using Exterior paint and adding algaecide or a weed killer... I just wanted to try and see if anyone on here has tried these methods and if so how did it work... or just any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Thanks Again fellow crabbers & best of luck to all!

I have not heard of using the house paint but do have friends that tried adding weed killer to the pot paint.  Short story was it didn't work as that's not how it's made to be used.  The only thing I can find is to just deal with it.  Not fun at all.

 If you find out anything different please share.

I  don't know the brand but I know commercial crabbers that buy outdoor house paint from home depot that has some sort of algaecide in it. It is less expensive and just as effective. They only paint  the bottoms now and not the entire pot where the crabs apparently walk most of it off. I guess I could say the first floor of the trap is what is painted from what I've seen. Even at that the pots are still cleaned on board weekly with a 4400 psi power washer .
