Offshore Angler Double Ring Cotton Crab Net
The cotton string net tangle easy. Crabs hide in rocks and although I lowered the crab net slowly into the water off Franklyn Lock walkway to the fishing pier it tangled with itself, with rocks on the bottom and on the oysters clinging to the dam wall. When setting it down off the fishing pier, slight current caused the net to tangle with the pilings. It may work in an area where you can see the bottom, set it on sand and hope a blue carb will wander into it. The next challenge is getting the crab out of the cotton net. I will try it again, while waiting for the steel nets to arrive.

I deserve what i got. I had to switch my order to a cheaper product because my original order was out of stock and on back order. Oh well the substitute has rings that twist and bend too easily, the cording is the thinnest twine imaginable, and of the six nets I just might get one more use out of four of them. I'm now involved in an effort to make my own as I've found heavier steel rings, and I know what type of netting material I will use.

do not purchase
Just purchased this crab net last week. Used this weekend and it is the cheapest thing ever. I guess you really get what you pay for. Don't waste your money on it. The rings are cheap and bend to easy, the net is the thinnest cord ever. We used one day and have huge holes in it. We lost more crabs than we caught.

The double ringed cotton crab nets are poorly made. The cotton string is very thin and 5 out of the 10 pots I purchased broke on my first outing. I would not recommend these crab nets.
