Andre Bouchard- Owner of Five Used Lobster Traps


Andre contacted me through the blog and asked if I knew where he could get some used lobster traps to fish with his family under a recreational permit.

Of course.  We got him set up with some great traps and next summer he will be ready to rock.

If anyone needs any info on how to get a recreational lobster permit or a student permit for their children let me know.  We can always source decent used traps for you so you don’t have to go and spend $70 on new ones.

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.
