Just wondering if anyone on here has ever fished this style pot before? If so how was it?

I've heard them called arrow head pots. They're pretty big and awkward to handle.

I am experimenting as they are very expensive. And also super heavy I may have to take the runners off. My 12 in hauler is going to have its work cut out this year. Lol..

If you don't mind my asking, are they from Ketchum?

Yeah from Ketchum someone ordered them and the sale fell through I guess. I know they are the perfect width for the bed of my full size truck, not sure of the weight. I can imagine what they are gonna weight with some slime on them let alone with fish.

20 pot trawls rigged with these pots? I know there are real strong haulers out there that could do it easily just not sure about the one I have. Its just a 12 inch with dual v belt pulley Pitts clutch.

Those traps catch blackfish very well and they do ok with scup. But they dont catch seabass nearly as well as the lobster style trap.

Just regular crab pot worked good on sea bass just reshaped the tunnels a bit, easy to handle . don't ask why but seemed like plain galvanized out caught the vinyl covered. Seen a few float too.

Here on Long Island they call those traps heart traps and they set them around structure for sea bass and scup. They don't bait them the fish go into them more for hiding and living space then they can't get out. The ones guys use around here are pretty big and heavy.
