Yup, I've dropped traps out around Maine Island with the old cat-food bait.

Knowing where, and how deep is the skill/passed on knowledge though... once we put out four traps at 300 feet of depth each.. lost one trap.. and had about 20 prawns after ALL that hauling of the other 3 traps!!! :(

That's a lot of effort for something that I can get for less than $10/lb, a five minute walk from home! :)

Crab... on the other hand... hmmmmmm..... gotta get crab traps.

06-09-2008, 02:44 PM
carbs are easy to, they can be caught a 80 feet with old stinky fish, i love those to [5]

Ohh man! Fresh crab and prawns sounds soooooo good. I can't wait for the fresh Atlantic lobster Todd and I will eat next month. Go to the seaside and get it fresh from the Atlantic ocean... yummy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I just got back from the Island, Qualicum, the mother in-law gets these for me all the time. I'm always pigging out on them. I will be filling my deep freeze next trip.

Best place to stop after a day wandering... Port Renfrew...


The shellfish platter was amazing !


(of course, Kelly is allergic to shrimp, but it doesn't stop her from having a feast once in awhile... even if she gets a wicked headache ! )
