It was left on the curb by a cheasapeak bay commercial fisherman.

It looks like some kind of an experiment that didn't work out. He certainly put a lot of work into it. Maybe he was trying to catch large eels? It would be interesting if you could find him and ask what it was for.

He moved out of the house across the street. Im sure he is still in town but not sure where. I dont want to throw it away, his land lord piled up all the junk he couldn't get out intime.

Keeper pen for crabs or eels maybe. The external bait replenishment pods are different.

looks like an eel pot. There is a place in Mathews - cant remember the name. But if you google search for Mathews VA commercial rope and fishing supplies you should find them. Send them some good pics and I bet they will know. Heycharlie probably knows the company I am referring to
