    Anyone used these much? it looks pretty efficient, I am using the big square ones now and they are a pain.
    my concern here is that my pots come back pretty beat up looking I'm afraid the mesh on these might tear and poof there go your shrimp?
    anyone got experience with these in the strait? my pots get pretty beat:)

    I've been using them for 5 seasons now and no issues. I like them because they don't require additional weight (39" pot) and stack inside of each other. Oh, and they catch shrimp! Have no experience with them in the straits though.

    They are good pots. They are what I use in the juans. If your not shrimping in the canal you better add weight to your pots including these ones. I use a collapsible anchor with 5' of rope tied to the bottom of these. Besides that a moving pot does not fish worth a shit.

    The stacking is a great feature. I am able to fit the entire stack of pots into the cuddy and I can stack all of the buoys right inside.

    They flat out catch shrimp. Stuff a bunch of bait inside (wet, dry, and fish scraps) and they will fill quick. We had one last year that had 250 shrimp in under an hour.

    I've had no issues with tears.

    These are 9 years old now and I have never torn one on the bottom. I did have a mouse chew one just mended it with some cord. They get used a lot as shrimping is one of my families favorite pastimes. the top picture is about 120-150 in the pot and the bottom pic is 200+.

    Ladners and the eclipse stealth pots both fish great but some of the bigger pots that have ramp entrances rather than tunnels fish better on a short soak. Ladners rule for stacking! If you want traps that catch prawns faster so you can get back to the dock and get pissed eh, then get the ramp style. This just for our Canuck friends.

    My motto is get drunk not pissed.

    I fish the Jauns for shrimp every year as well (except for last year when the bastards closed the season early). I also use the small anchors with about 5-6' of line. I am starting to wonder....I know it is helpful, but last time I shrimped the anchor got hung up. I could not get the pot off the bottom, finally, I had to cleat it to the boat, and prayed the anchor line would give before the main line. Luckily, that happened......I was fishing big tides (had no choice) so maybe that was how the anchor got hung up, but I'm a bit leary of anchors now...

    I would love to get Landers, already invested in other types...so maybe down the road.......

    Be safe all...Swanny

    Fish Ladners not the ones that try to trick you.

    Kafi Pots use the term Ladners Like. They are not Ladners. The are smaller and the netting used gives off a sent that the shrimp don't like. If you have them already. Go soak them in the salt for awhile.

    Tie to the bottom of the small anchor and the zip tie to the anchor shaft. If the anchor gets stuck pull hard and the zip ties break and the you pull the anchor from the bottom.
