Default Question to the group

To all,


My question is which crab pot is better, wired metal or nylon rope over
a metal frame ?.

I have two wired metal round crab pots and have caught plenty of mud
crabs in them, but I have been told the nylon rope over a metal frame
are better because crabs don't like the touch of metal.

I would like to hear from other people about what crabs pots they use
and their results.


Justin

All the commercial crab fisherman in Louisiana use metal wire traps.
Recreational usually use a round double ring net that when lifted forms a
sidewall. The nets are usually dipped to increase life.
