WTB: Folding Lobster Traps

I'm looking for a couple folding lobster traps. Does anyone have any recommendations on where to find these?

I tried emailing these folks, but their email address apparently no longer works: Yachty-Pots lobster pots

We use crab rings on our boat in Washington, but they have to be attended to every 20 minutes or so. What is your style in lobstering?

Lobster pots are usually made of wood, I think in Florida that was law, because the wood eventually rots away. Otherwise long after the float gets cut or lost from the pot, the lobsters keep entering the trap to feed on other lobsters, and the traps keep killing. That's what I was always told anyway.

That's the type of thing - only I've seen similar items previously for maybe 1/4 that price.

(I don't intend to use in U.S. waters and only one from time to time)

In my experience a lobster in a trap is quickly followed by a large octopus so you need to check them frequently. Fortunately, should you be a little late, octopus tastes good as well
