    I have just been told in no uncertain terms By a friend Who knows about Kayaking
    It is not safe to attempt to lift Crab/Lobster pots in a Kayak It is out right dangerous infact.
    I know lads who do use pots in Kayaks however
    What is the general thought on Potting in Yaks Lads?
    I dont want to mislead anyone Infact I dont think I dare suggest Potting in a Yak is "Safe" until I find out more?

    ducky maybe one day...

    I would be happy to pull pots from my yak. I think it would take some getting use to but would be ok. I may be wrong have been before.

    I would imagine your friend Acko, is either a pot fisherman who wants to deter yakers from lifting pots or a kayaker who`s never tried it.
    I am a permit holder and do have my own traps, which I use when out kayak fishing. I can say the activity is quite safe and productive. I myself use the collapsible traps, both the small Fladen round ones and some larger traps that measure 3ft X 2ft, these are light weight and easy to lift.
    A proper creel is far too heavy to safely lift from the sea bed whilst afloat on a kayak.
    It all depends on what yak you`re using as well, I only use the traps off my BG

    Lad I was talking to is a Yakker Its just his personal opinion I spoke to a few yakkers who use pots they all dissagree with him
    I got a bit worried tho incase I was giving out Bad Information I think experienced Yakkers are OK Not too sure about Novices tho?
    Sold 3 Pots only 2 left if anyones interested?
