View Full Version : Crab Pot Buoy Tying

Does anyone know the proper method for attaching a flagged crab pot buoy to the crab pot line? Ive noticed that the prepackaged buoys have a line that runs from the botton of the pole (under the buoy), to above the buoy, and I am not sure of the reasoning behind this.

I think Bakkie had a post about that a couple of months ago. Maybe he will chime in or you might do a search for it.

I made mine myself with pvc with caps on each end. On the bottom, I used an eye-bolt with a large washer and nut inside the cap. I then put an eye-splice on the end of my line, and I attach the two with a quick link shackle.
