View Full Version : Looking for Shrimp Trap

31-12-2004, 08:57 AM

My mate is wanting to buy one of the shrimp traps illustrated on the following website (please click on the link below). The trap is made of plastic coated steel mesh, and is in two parts that join together. Each half is approx 21cm (8 1/4 ins.) in length. Anyone knowing where we can buy this item please reply to this chat board.

I find the rectangular traps available from most fishing outlets for about $7 ideal. They have a steel collapsible frame and fold down next to nothing. When you want to use them you just realease the clips on each end and they spring into shape. They have a hole either end for the shrimp to enter and a large zippered opening at the top to place the bait inside. It is a good idea to leave this larger opening open as long as you are standing by your traps but if you are leaving them overnight then close this opening as tortoises willget in and eat your shrimps and drown. Also don't forget (at least in N.S.W.) to put your name and address on them I copped a $500 fine some years ago for failing to have my name and address on my traps.-Beatle [smiley=beatnik.gif] [smiley=beatnik.gif]
