One of the fishing techniques used by fishermen to catch lobster seeds is using a "trap" fishing tool known as "pocong" and hanging it from a cage. adding attractors with the aim of attracting the attention of the seeds, namely green LED (Light Emitting Diode) dipping lights and also coconut leaves. The research method used is experimental fishing using 4 pocog fishing gear which are operated simultaneously, each using an attractor and without an attractor. The research was conducted from September 2021 to January 2022 at Lhokseudu Beach. The seeds caught include clear lobster seeds, pistol shrimp seeds, papermint shrimp seeds, giant prawn seeds, and coral fish seeds, and crabs. The catches were analyzed using the ANOVA test which showed that the number of catches was not significantly different between treatments. The highest productivity value was found in pocong fishing gear with an LED dipped light attractor and coconut leaves, amounting to 317 fish/unit, while the lowest productivity was obtained by pocong fishing gear without an attractor, namely 218 fish/unit
