Took a break from the boat to catch up on some shrimp pot business inventory. Built some chum pots and a customer ordered 3 of my crab pots modified with bigger head openings for king crab, he works out on Adak and thats where the pots are going once i get them finished. He also bought a Electra Dyne for hauling them :D.

chum pots used for halibut

yup always build in black for the pots i sell, i've tried green, white, red and when customers see it it confuses them :p they always ask "does green fish better or don't you have black" ??? I build yellow for myself that way if a see a yellow pot on a boat or spy a boat hauling yellow gear i can get the gun out sooner !:eek: I'd like to get some blue but Riverdale doesn't make it in 1x1.

Why, what do you do with a gun?


Pricing for CE Shepard wire went out of control for us in the NE. It might be more cost effective for you than Riverdale since they are closer.

you can custom order it. I have a connection at riverdale, she said that they run the stuff all the time. you could have them do a custom run but im not sure how much you would need to buy for them to do it.

You have to order a lot! Or just order it and they will piggy back it on other orders..even if it takes 2 years for them to get enough orders for a special run. Last year I got a load of lime green:shock:
