lobstering is a no go you have to get a licence for that and tag your pots and take home certain size lobsters and only so many there very strict on it you get caught not do any of the rules and ur in for a big fine and trip to court i was going to do that till my grandad told me all about it as he has lobster pots out :( hope that helps you a little dont think it costs for the licence but aint sure :-S

in my area you are allowed up to 4 pots as a leisure fisherman and can take home 1 lobester and 2 crabs without a licence so chek out your local rules - if I am fishing from the local pier I will drop down pot and collect it when finished and sometimes supper is of the fresh shellfish variety

I use crab/shrimp traps all the time in the river medway very good for getting fresh shrimps prawns and crab often get lots of small pout and fish for live baiting as well

I am not sure about the absolute rule regarding lobsters but it must be logged rigidly somewhere.
What I have been studying is Haaf netting, similar to the shrimp net but longer it is also now illegal to use them without licence with the last usage under licence on the Solway Firth, they carry the licence disc on the frame & limited to 150 permits per year. What is not very clear is the minimal size for the Haaf net, when does it become a shrimp net.
Good luck with your shrimping Keith
