I read a great article on ghost pots last fall....something like 300,000 ghost pots in the Chesapeake alone.

Viginia I think has a program paying Crabbe to find ghost pots and they are bringing in tens of thousands I think...pretty cool. The state thinks the revenue offset on saving livingresources trapped in the ghost pots more than offsets the bounty on them.

If you saved that stinky, rusty might get a few dollars for it someplace!
