I’m really into so many people who love to fish. That’s why we decided to offer this useful and interesting guide through which be able to memorize how to build a real trap for fish, that we want to capture, and we want to eat, perhaps with friends and relatives during a barbecue in the country, the first thing we must know is that building a fish trap is a very easy job that can be accomplished in a short time. First you need to decide the type and size of the fish that you want to capture. Usually small fish just build a trap by 30 cm in diameter and 60 cm long; for the larger fish (CARP, catfish or the clingfishes) much larger measures are required. In the guide you will find all the information you need to follow to build a fish trap.
Let’s get to work and have fun at all!
Be sure to have on hand:
- work tools
- manual skills
Choose the form you must submit your trap; in most cases are constructed of rectangular shape, but cylindrical ones are better because it does not allow the entry of no water and therefore it is very difficult that a fish can escape.
Select the material for the construction of the trap; for example in Alabama where catching Catfish is a tradition, the traps are made with strips of white oak intertwined with galvanized steel or copper wires; Since this requires considerable skill and also enough time, we recommend building a trap that has as a mesh. Certain mesh sizes (for the minnows as bait a network with meshes of a centimeter and a half is just fine).
Cut the wire mesh big enough so you can allow overlapping seams and can be folded like a box. A trap of 30 cm in height and 60 cm long, will require the use of a wire mesh 6 metres long and 4 metres wide. Fold the wire mesh so that form angles of 90 degrees.
Related end angle with a small wire calibration. Formed a funnel at the end of the box; the opening of the funnel should appear sufficiently large so as to allow the fish to continue swimming for dropping then into the trap. Attach the wire so that it can be easily untied when you take the fish you catch. Put into the trap a bag of fruit or the bait that prepared normally. Hang outside the trap a stone or a brick to keep it float (it is important that it remains firmly on the bottom); use a rope to pull it out of the water once you have finished fishing.
- Note that knowing how to build a real fish trap, it’s a way to be able to catch a lot and be able to eat in the company.
