Kai Koura Craypots

Advantages of our pots include:

1) The shape of the pot makes for easy stacking in even a small amateur pleasure boat.

2) The way the bait box is designed means it's really easy to lift the hinged lid and put your bait in.

3) The bait box enables you to use everything from fish skins and trimmings through to entire fish frames, and is a big improvement on previous systems.

4) The bait box is positioned away from the sides and is a robust plastic box that keeps the bait active for much longer. To eat any of it, the crays have to climb in.

5) The bait box's lid is made of a special UV protected plastic and allows for clear display of your details, as required by fisheries inspectors.

6) The pot's rectangular shape also means it tends to stay steady on the sea bed, as opposed to round pots or pots made from lighter materials, which often move around on the sea bed as the swells go by. Unstable pots rarely catch crayfish.

7) The throat is a robust heavy duty molded plastic entrance way (not a cheap plastic bucket). The throats slippery one-way entrance makes it much more difficult for crays to escape.

8) The pot's corners hold crayfish for longer as they seem to give a false sense of security, as opposed to the traditional round pots, which the crays tend to get out of after daylight.

9) The pot's mesh and escape gaps are compliant with MAF regulations

10) All parts are replaceable on order.
