Well over a 5 day span I start at about 3:30 when I get home ( my hours have been cut) and I come in the house about 11:30 I've built about 30 or so and repaired about 60. right now we got about 140 in the water, which are going to be pulled tomorrow.
Roughly a 24" Cube made out of 1 1/2" Aquamesh pvc coated wire looks kind of like chicken wire. we'll pull the pots for the winter around the end of Nov. and then I get to start repairing and making Eel pots yaaaaaa even more fun!! but they are 2.25 a pound right now and we can average about 900 to 1200 lbs a week when they are feeding good you do the math. lol
oh yeah it is! wait til next march. when we set about 125 peeler crab pots. when they shed their shell they are what 's called a soft shell crab we sell them to a buyer for 50 buck a flat and there are only 12 crabs to a flat, abd we load about 15 to 20 flat to take to the buyer. have you ever eaten a soft shell crab? you take the crab pull off his shell clean it out with cold water, batter it and deep fry it and eat. legs body and all! they are sooo good you won't want another steamed crab.
