Where to buy good crab pots in Darwin?!

Post by franklinryan » Fri Oct 25, 2013 12:03 pm

Hi... Am wondering, other than the usual commercial outlets, where can I buy some good quality crab pots in Darwin that are designed to CATCH crabs?! I do a fair amouunt of crabbing and want to buy some quality pots, whether they be collapsable or made of wire.
Any contacts or recommendations please...! Thanks.

theres a fella who sells them at the side of the road out past howard springs lights most weekends. Geoff is his name I think. they were $25 each, collapsible and made of wire. I use them and my catch rate is pretty good IMO. have lasted the past 18 months and look like they will keep going for quite some time

Just be aware of share farmers. Dont stray too far from your pots or you will come back to empty pots :evil:
