    Spotted Prawn is a viable, deep water commercial fishery. It is difficult to catch enough to make it cost effective.

    Ill give it a go. Got the DL on the traps and general areas. Guess its just like regular crabbin, just soak a pot and hope for the best. Deep.

    Hey Kit maybe shark at the same time ?

    Are you allowed to detach and use a buoy and man over board it and stay in the general area ?

    used to do it commercial when i was in high school out of LA harbor. pacific spot prawns. we used small traps that were set 10 or so to a gang in deep water. really great eating. you should get with the bd'ers from washington state as i believe a majority of them also fish for prawns up in that neck of the woods.

    These prawns are deep, not the red rock shrimp. I used to sell them live. I think they are around 500-1000+ feet deep.

    roger, because of the depth that we would fish them we would use 10 traps on one piece of rope, so when you pull your buoy you are bringing up all ten traps roughly spaced 10 fathoms or so apart.
