Crab Pots for Sale
A crab pot is a round rope- knitted cage with a funnel opening and a well in the middle to hold scraps of bait fish. The crab find their way easily in, but they can't get out. The pots are thrown over the side of the boat and are tied to long ropes attached to floats. These colorful pots are still awaiting their new owner in Port de Grave.
