Some of the draggers near me do well with these mantis shrimp, problem is that I dont have a dragger. So I am thinking of experimenting with some shrimp pots to try to catch them. Does anyone have any experience with this???? I am not even sure what a shrimp pot looks like, can you guys who do this up north help me out. Maybe some pictures of traps and a little how to?? I think that if I can pot these things that I can turn a profit. thanks.

I've tried the maine style pots for shrimp here in alaska they didn't catch shit compare to this style pot i build, 2 different species of shrimp and that probably has a lot to do with it. What do the shrimp you want to target look like. My pots are made of 1x1 wire and they are 24x24x9 in size.
