Idk..5 pots plus other gear and accessoriesc isnt that teetering on going beyond a yak�s weight capacity?
Anyhow, glad he�s ok. Goos job on whoever helped out.
Weight capacity not problematic. Trying to balance 6 pots while paddling (plus conditions) is difficult at best, and once it flips, trying to upright a kayak tied down with gear in the dark...
Trying to untie gear in an upside down yak even in daytime, one would still be doing it by feel, unless you have a snorkel mask handy.

Again, glad the dude is safe.

I was under the impression that you are only allowed 5 crab pots per person and therefore only 5 per kayak. I put 4 on my kayak and it feels pretty maxed out.

There is no limit in California to the number of traps or rings you can work from a kayak.

I thought there is no limit for number of pots but there is a limit for rings.  Need to read that section again.

I usually put 20 pots on my yak. Without wearing a pfd too so my yak is lighter. I can also bench 600 lbs. and fly. And I can breathe underwater . Just sayin.  :smt002 :smt002
