Collapsable traps, many sizes, fold flat, simple and VERY efficient

Suggest you take a peek at www.interextrading.com - active site, scroll around and click on numbered pictures for full info. Prices are on the site too. Good hunting

They seem like good value but i still havent found out if they need additional weighting.

My dad put some new pots in the water the other day, unbaited, just to get them smelling right. When he pulled them up the next day to bait them: 8 lobsters!

i've always wondered about the legality of using lobster pots

having lived on skye for a few years i can tell you that the fisherman are VERY picky about people infringing on what they see as their waters

can you use them if you have sea frontage on your land?

Are you following me?! My old chap lives in Ireland, and a couple of other people put pots out in the bay where he lives, but no-one seems to mind. It's only done by locals though, not visitors.

I don't think that there are legal issues, as far as I remember. More the finding your pots aren't there any more/getting thumped if you throw them on someone's patch issues.

I don't think you have any (legal property or fishery) rights below the high tide line. Beyond that it belongs to the Crown, as far out as territorial rights are claimed...

Living by the sea I am quite interested in adding fish to my diet for free. But I am unsure how I actually catch lobsters. What do I do with my pot? Can I walk out at low tide throw the pot in and then come back at the next low tide?

Last winter while walking the dog I found a large live lobster on the beach couldn't believe it - but my husband made me throw it back in saying it was a sick one. I have asked the local fisherman and he says they do sometimes come ashore when its very cold and it would have been fine to eat. But he is not very forthcoming on giving me advice on catching my own.

which is why all dead whales that get washed up belong to the queen.

Not in Ireland, it doesn't! Not any more! I don't think legal issues have aver been raised. And the beach doesn't join onto our land, anyway. Each person has the buoys to the pots marked with a different colour and puts them in the same place each time.

He goes out in a small boat to put them out: I don't think the tide goes low enough. Other than that, it's dead easy!

It's a bit like the people on the south and other coasts who shoot large seafowl on the sands...as long as its below the high water mark. Odd to think that seaside tourist resorts can have people banging away on them quite legally, unless local byelaws prohibit.
