So if your line is leaded, is there still need of tying it down or using leaded weights?
I'm assuming it wouldn't hurt.
If the line sinks and is not a boat hazard you don’t need to add weights.

Got it! Yeah Iím using leaded line and itís under the water. Besides zip tying it I was trying to see how others lay their pots.

Thanks for the tips!

This was shared at the Crabbing Seminar we held a feeewww years ago at CCK-Oakland. :smt009

Sorry Frank & Bunny! I know that I REALLY lagged on getting you a copy!!! :smt010

Great tips!

I recently saw a video of a chef preparing a whole crab. He indicated you can humanly kill the crab quickly by piercing the belly of the crab just under the tip of the tail. This supposedly hits the central nervous system, killing the crab. Of course you would then want to immediately put it in the pot.
