Marine Geocaching in General geocaching topics Posted December 22, 2005 I don't know about Maine waters, but I lived in south Florida in the 70's and there were a couple of cases of corpses found in shot-up boats that were probably related to lobster trap theft. I would suggest using a small float that is difficult to see, maybe camoflaged, in a place where there are no trap floats and a boat is unlikely to go over it. If there is any possibility of searchers pulling a trap float by mistake, I would make it clear in the posting that trap floats should be avoided. FWIW, a few years ago I came across such a small camoed float in a Florida bay and it was attached to an illegal fish trap ... I dropped it and moved my boat out of the area pronto.
