DMG Lobster Trap Runners

DMG Lobster trap runners are produced from several very resistant species. Selected on scientific data for resistance to sea worms and abrasion DMG runners are an intelligent choice.  DMG runners are available either molded, {dressed four sides with eased edge} or rough sawn. Either way they will measure at least 1 inch by 1 ¾.

The bottom around Frenchboro is very jagged and rocky.  This is great lobster habitat but not so kind to lobster traps.  Sliders especially take a beating due to the extreme tides and ocean surge.  I have been using Dale and Marty’s jungle wood sliders for three years now.  Their sliders are thicker and more durable then the furniture grade sliders that are presently on the market and sold by many trap companies.


I personally would rather have these beefier sliders.  They take a beating and after three years are still in great shape.  Frenchboro also has a lot of mud bottom.  Once again, good bottom for lobsters but not for sliders.  Worm bores will attack your sliders like a pack of beavers!  And as I said earlier, I fish year round; following the lobsters off shore in the fall and winter fishing mud bottom.  Worms will destroy sliders in six months on this mud bottom.  I have found no evidence of bores in the jungle wood sliders; even after three years in some of the most extreme conditions.


I 100% endorse these jungle wood sliders and have over 800 traps with sliders to back it up!  Please feel free to call me anytime.


Thank you,

Jay

My name is Zach Donnell.  I have been using runners from DMG for two years now.


The runners have been excellent to work with and are all sized to fit the traps perfectly.  I was also able to get runners from them when I couldn’t get them anywhere else.  


Last year I put over 700 of them and had two that broke during the course of the year.  They have not shown any wear or worm holes.  Overall I am very happy with them and will definitely keep using them.
