Recommendation on lobster/crab pots

Do any of you have folding crab/lobster pots on your cruisers. If so,

What would you recommend to buy and where?

How much success have you had?

Most, if not all, jurisdictions require a license (not available to transients) to operate a lobster/crab/fish trap.
I've very successfully built and operated fish traps for Bahamian citizens. It can be very productive.

I've thought of putting a lobster pot near my mooring. I know they come into my area because local commercial lobstemen put them nearby. [and I do have a license]
A man who is not afraid of the sea will soon be drowned, he said, for he will be going out on a day he shouldn't. But we do be afraid of the sea, and we only be drowned now and again.
