    Hello, yvon marie,

    Welcome to the Forum!

    I don't know what 'trot' means here. But 'trot' can be short for 'trotline':

    "A strong fishing line suspended over the wter, with short, baited lines hung from it at intervals."

    Are they fishing for visitors? Or are the visitors doing some kind of fishing?

    Que signifie en français le terme de "trot" que l'on trouve sur des cartes marines anglaises ? Il pourrait s'agir de ligne de mouillages sur corps-morts.
    Merci de votre aide.
