Scotty has a winner with their new trap puller.  Fitting into a standard Scotty gunwale mount, this puller will haul up about 100 lbs, enough for up to three prawn traps and perhaps two crab traps. The 12-volt high-torque motor draws only about 15 amps. With a horizontal windlass and an extension arm and directional pulley, it is easy to mount and use. It can also be dismounted when it’s time to switch to a down-rigging fishing system. Finally, fishing and trap gear on one mount. About $500.
