I'm new to using pots but i was wondering if it is worthwile setting lobster pots in bad weather (F6/7 at the moment i think). It will be off a pier although i know i will be safe, how will it affect scent and do lobsters still 'hunt' during bad weather

Just watch out when your hauling the pot in,big wave might catch the pot and a sudden pull might have you over.

thanks for the advice m8, this is a shore line would that still apply when it comes to rocky areas obviously i will put extra weight in to hold it in place but will lobsters not get smashed against the rocks
