Well built trap for the money. I fish Central Florida's West Coast and
this trap has been very effective for catching Blue Crabs. I would have
given the product 5 stars, but the open/close clasps were installed
backwards from the factory. It's a small inconvenience and easily
All over poor material for crabbing. The meat net never made it
through one sitting and the 2nd time we put them in the water all
three had holes in the side and they were not left out over 24hours.
The latches that hold the cage together are designed poorly and had
we not of had it tied with a rope it would have came open releasing
what little was caught. The rails that come up and hold the shape of
the cage kept popping off and we had to put back together. All in all
very unsatisfied and feel as though my money was wasted! Would
return for refund but seeing how cage was destroyed seen no point!
I though it worked great, I have never Crabbed before and didn't
want to pay 50+ dollars for a crab pot incase I didn't like it. I loved
that it was clasp able and light weight also easy to use, and I have
a friend who has been fishing and crabbing for years and he
borrowed the trap and is now considering getting a couple of his
own because they are easy to use and carry. Worth the 14.99 and
I bought 2 of these traps and
use them for all sorts of
trapping. I use them in a local
creek to catch creek bass and
bream to stock my pond. I use
them to catch crawfish in the
ditches along farm land. For
the price, you can't beat these
I bought 2 traps. I am using
them in Salt water (Galveston
and Bay areas) to catch Blue
Crabs. The trap does work
though I have not had the kind
of luck I would like to have like
2 traps full of crabs. That's not
the traps fault. I have also had
a small fish or two get in the
trap. Would love to find a trap
full of shrimp. They were
packaged very well and
arrived much quicker than I
expected. Yes I will and have
recommended them to others.
Now to see how long they last.
Worked exactly how I thought it
would....Highly recommend this
product for crawdad trapping!!!
I was originally skeptical how
effective this little trap would be
for catching Dungeness crab but it
has out-done a professional trap. I
would highly recommend this trap.
I bought 2 of these to give them a try in my pond and
creek. I was impressed with the speed of shipping, the
price was much better then any of the bait/fishing
places here in the area. I baited the trap and set it in
my creek first and within several hours had 2 catfish,
the method to take the fish out is fool proof but you
have to be careful with the latches. After catching the
cats I moved the trap to the pond, caught a tilapia and
a bass after being in over night. On the following day I
was pole fishing trying to get the bass out of the pond,
caught a bigger one put him in the trap my dog who
loves fish and swimming found it and tromped the trap
but other then a minor tear which I sewed up no probs,
We ate the bass and tilapia that night in a curried rice
dish. Im happy with the traps and would buy them
Worked just like it should,
Excellent trap. Seller provided
great support and service.
Delivered as promised.
These pots preform amazingly! The only thing they
needed was a little weight to keep them from drifting
away in the current. so what we did was take two 18"
long rebar pieces and zip tie them to each side. now
they work perfectly! We catch tons of crawdad in our
lake with three of these pots. We are so satisfied, we
plan to buy two more so we can have five total pots.
Which is the legal limit for number of traps in our
area. The net is prone to ripping occasionally but this
is easily fixed with a little know how and a zip tie!
just used these for the first time today and
they worked as well as the danielsons and
the round collapsable promars i had. one
trap had 14 dungies in it ( only 6 legal )
and that was the most of any trap i had
today. they do need some weight. i added
some rebar and a standard size brick and
that was enough. nicely folds flat on the
boat and is easier to carry and cheaper
than the round promars i have
