I am considering buying a few used commercial crab pots. Is there any reason not to buy them? Do new or old pots tend to catch better. I am just curious as I havent been able to find much on the forums and I dont have a ton of cash for all new equipment. I have never run pots before. How long does a typical pot last in the bay? Any input would be great. Cheers.

Do you hold a commercial crabbing license?  If not, commercial pots are illegal for recreational use.

As for used pots, if the price is reasonable and the frame work and mesh is in good shape, used pots would be a good way to get started.

Last time I heard a price on a pot was a year or so ago: a standard Eddie Heath hex wire pot with stainless hog rings and 1/2" x 1/2" tall bait box was $23. Then you have to add a rebar frame for weight (about 3 different sizes available), zincs (about 3 sizes available) bait box door, rope, cull rings, floats and paint.
