    Even the gear looks brand new. The pots and the warp are spotless. Must be a promotional demo video.

    I'm not a commercial fisherman, but I do like the looks of that setup,
    great way to preserve your back,
    now that I am older, I think hydraulics are a great thing for keeping your body in one piece
    wish I had that idea when I was younger and dumber
    would have saved me a lot of problems now

    A guy at our dock fishes from a skiff hand pulling his traps. He is in his mid 70s and runs his gear faster than that o_O

    Yup, definitely a slow tempo. It has been a while since I went stern man but I think if you have your davit in the correct location there is no need to lift the trap. With my father's set you the trap is lifted high enough by the davit and hauled that when you "whip" the role from the hauler the trap falls to the rail with guidance and a pull inward with your other hand.

    It is a good idea for someone that all ready has a back issue, but I believe your just adding a step for little gain.

    Yep that little gain can mean a much healthier you down the road. It's usually a hard sell for the younguns or those who don't experience back pain Every morning, throughout the day and at night. For someone that already has back pain ,it's To Late !!. Prevention is the way to go. Keep your back well Jerry.

    Oh but yeah, i would make much faster reacting than that. Yeah i know OSHA would cringe but wtf. :)
