scotty pot hauler review

I decided this season that I was no .longer going to pull eel pots and lobster traps by hand, after reading reviews and talking to other fisherman, I decided to buy a Scotty pot puller, it's rated to 100 lbs and 125fpm.of line retrieval ..it mounts on a scotty down rigger mount, (standard mount included) and has a low amp draw, 30 amps max, it's utilizes 12 ga. Wire, it weighs in the neighborhood of 16 lbs and is easily removed and install,I added a swivel
Mount and 6" pedestal to make grabbing the pot bridle easier , I had the swivel mount from my downriggers the pedestal was another $60 I added a 5' length of 12 ga wire and utilized my electric motor outlet, (this comes with male and female marinco plugs)price for the hauler was $393 through Amazon,it utilizes a capstan type pulley to make hauling pots easy,even in heavy winds and tide, a friend has a hauler made by brute, after seeing mine in action he said the next time his brute fails(he's on the 3rd one), he trying the scotty.i find it the perfect solution to recreationally fish for lobster,eels and crabs... I also used it to haul my anchor after flounder fishing..as well.i wish I had bought it years ago
So if your tired of hauling pots by hand and a sore back, check out the various videos and testimonials on this hauler. .

A good run is better than a bad stand!

I hauled my anchor earlier this year while haddock fishing 20lb anchor, 10'of 3/8 chain from 180' of water, no slower than pulling a bug trap from 50' of water..

Very good Joe
You're always thinking
work smarter, not harder

The United States Constitution does not exist to grant you rights; those rights are inherent within you. Rather it exists to frame a limited government so that those natural rights can be exercised freely.

1984 was a warning, not a guidebook!

Sounds like a good solution for a smaller boat where you can mount a electric or hydraulic hauler.
IDE be lost without my Electradyne hauler on my BHM, especially hauling 600 feet of anchor, 30 feet of heavy chain and my anchor.
