Soak Time, etc.
Posted by B_M on May 07 2005
I think it's best to soak the pots at least 12 hours.  That will give you both the incoming and outgoing tides, thereby carrying the bait scent in both directions.  You can certainly soak them longer (I've left the down for 2 weeks and still caught numerous shrimp), but 12 hours will be long enough to do fairly well.  After a day or so, your bait will likely lose most of it's scent, and therefore will not attract any more shrimp.

As for your idea of using a bucket, I guess it would work.  I would, however, ask around and try to find an old buoy.  If you set in water that's too deep a good buoy is what will save your pots from being sunk forever.  Also, if I were out there I would stop by and try to pick up a bucket if I saw one floating...I wouldn't bother a buoy, as I know it's attached to something.

Good luck!
