creelersfedlogCreel fishing (also known as Potting) is referred to as a ‘passive’ or ‘static’ form of fishing as the baited creels are dropped from the boat to the seabed where they soak until they are next retrieved by the vessel.

The main species targeted in Scotland are prawns, lobster and crabs. Different bait is used depending on what species is being targeted.

The creel is generally made of round steel bar which is plastic coated and then covered with netting. Target species enter via small netted tunnels on either side of the creel.
