Matt Cooney- Lobsterman Getting Ready To Work On A Pile Of Traps
Matt and his son have been working in the yard on a pile of traps for a while now. New traps can cost close to $80 so when you can buy decent used traps you can save a good amount of money. The used traps that lobstermen usually buy need to be “gone through”. Gone through meaning- the knitted heads may need repairing, the wooden slats on the bottom of the trap may need to be replaced to protect the bottom of the trap from wear, the escape vents might need new hog rings to keep them secure or the trap might just need to be brushed off from dead growth.
