Fortunately, they didn't construct it out of Kryptonite. So you should be fine.

However, I must add I was involved in an accident and have a titanium plate and 11 screws in my shoulder. Not sure how it will react to constant dipping.


I know those cheap aluminum handle with the small basket dipnets suck. But when I had shoulder issues I had one because it was way lighter then my normal dipnet. Iím now back to my normal one as my injury has healed. I broke my foot this year at a ramp in talbot county. Right smack in the middle of the season.. keep your head up it will heal

sorry for the delay, didn't see this till this am. I run a 24 ft Chesapeake classic, its 9 ft wide on the rub rails and about 8 ft wide on the deck. very stable and the dipper is alum 30 x 30 with a forward frame 30x30 and rear frame about 24x24 then the bag. 12 volt winch. This is my 4 th season coming with the dipper and I love it. my best run since I had it was 81 keepers on 1 of my lines that is 1500 ft. could barley get the bag out of the dipper. it took 30 plus days to learn it and a few gear changes and at one point in learning I was ready to unbolt and dump it in the bay, lots of swearing and bitchin but in the end worth every min of frustration.

Rdbeard I am looking to buy another boat right now. Iím gonna do a workboat with a dipper. I have a 24 ft skiff now but I donít think this boat will go straight with a dipper on it. Too light in my opinion. Is your dipper stainless or aluminum? Any recommendations on the best to get is appreciated

The coolest part about this post is how it's taken us from November (with pictures of Brandon's lid busters) into January.  Lets keep this one wandering until Maryland waters are ready for us all.  We all need some titanium in our blood.  Lets journey ahead friends!  I'm still in the midst of reinventing a lightweight aluminum auto-dipper.   laugh laugh laugh

Probably would come in handy for many of us, my shoulders ain't gettin any younger.   Actually met a guy in Goodhands creek last summer from PA that had made one and was using it. He was laid  with one end near the duckblind on the corner of Goodhands and Kirwin.  The dipper was easily removable and would work great for non-everyday use for people with ailing shoulders.   I don't remember his name but I thought about him after I saw Brandon's ex-ray.         Maybe that guy will see this and chime in.

 Joe I would suggest alum unless you buy a heavy boat then it would be SS. By boat bare hull weight is 2000 lbs plus a 4 stroke , 300lbs a canopy 200 lbs + and equipment so while cs are light I think it would work with alum dipper. Some on here has got to be runnin a dipper on a cs skiff?Huh BTW keep an eye on craigs list, es esp. for a used dipper then look at them before buying to make sure it will work on your boat.

Ive put dippers on boats as small as 18' skiffs.  My steel dippers weighed about 65lbs.  No problems.  It all has to do with placement.

I have run my 30x30 dipper as shallow as 3ft or so by what my bottom machine was saying. I run my dipper completely under water including the uprights which the line passes through. This keeps the clam bags calmer or have less turbulence as it passes over the uprights.

Ray do you happen to have pics of your dippers on the boat?
