Statewide Shellfish Pot Rules—
Crab, Shrimp, & Crawfish

• Every shellfish pot, ring net, or star trap left
unattended
in Washington waters must have its
own buoy line and a separate buoy that is permanently and legibly marked with the owner’s
first name, last name, and permanent address
(telephone number is voluntary).

It is ILLEGAL to set or pull unattended shellfish gear with a
buoy that does not have your name on it, and
only one name and address may appear on
each buoy.   <---attended gear can whatever you want on it ;)

Any angler may assist the person
whose name is on the buoy while he or she
is pulling the pot. No fisher may set, or pull
shellfish gear from a vessel, in Marine Areas 1-13,
from one hour after official sunset to one hour
before official sunrise. All shellfish gear must
be removed from the water on closed days.

• Buoys must be constructed of durable material.
It is unlawful to use bleach, antifreeze, or detergent bottles, paint cans or any other container.
Buoys must be visible on the surface at all times    <---if left unattended
except during extreme tidal conditions. Personal flags and staff, if attached to buoys, can
be of any color. Buoy lines must be weighted
sufficiently to prevent them from floating on
the surface.

• All crab, shrimp, and crawfish pots must be
equipped with a biodegradable device (rot/
escape cord) which must be affixed to the pot
in at least one of the following ways:
1. Securing the pot lid hook or tie down strap
with a single loop of rot cord; or
2. Sewing a 3" by 5" escape panel in the upper
half of pot closed with rot cord; or
3. Attaching the pot lid or one pot side (serving as a pot lid) with no more than three
single loops of rot cord.

Cord used must be untreated 100% cotton,
hemp, jute, or sisal no larger than thread size
120 (1⁄8"). This cord, when attached as described
above, must be able to rot away and allow crab,
shrimp, crawfish and fish to escape freely if the
pot is lost. A derelict crab pot without proper
escape cord can attract and kill crabs for years
after the pot has been lost.

I don't see a good way to keep our pots from being thieved with these rules,  I already lost 3 Terry Bullard traps because I had proper floats.   

Some jackwagon cast from shore and hooked them. 

So I'll tie them off on shore, and the trick is to not leave them "unattended" per the rules. 


how far away can you get before it's "unattended"?

We have done well on crawdads this year. June was very productive.

Did trout fillets in the boil for the first time and they held up well with the skin on.

Is a buoy still a buoy if it sinks?

Did a 22 hour soak on lake WA with 3 pots and a couple fresh-ish sockeye carcasses. Weighted the pots down this time so they didn’t move on the bottom, 12-15 feet of water, rocky with no weeds. Skunked again!

I think crawfishin might be harder than salmon fishin up here!
