Potting or creeling uses small cages or baskets to capture crabs, lobsters. Pots differ in shape, size and construction materials, according to the target species and local practices. The pots are baited and set on the seabed singly or in strings attached to buoys, which act as location markers and support for the recovery lines. Vessels need to have a large open deck area to enable them to carry large numbers of pots.

All of the vessels are fitted with creel haulers which are designed to take the main rope, with pots lifted clear as they pass the winch. The pots are then left to soak and are usually raised each day or every other day, to allow the catch to be removed and fresh bait set. Their construction varies, but typically will be of plastic piping frames

with a netting cover and plastic ‘bucket’ entrance with a heavy plastic matrix base. The stanchions, base and top area are protected with either rope or old car tyre. A bait band formed by a rubber cross section of car inner tube is placed around the outside wall of the entry bucket, where portions of bait are held in place away from the outside walls of the pot.
