    I met a man a few years back the used the same designed trap with good success, according to him. He also was able to meet the legal size requirements and not have any left over wire, from a new roll, when constructing them. If I can locate him or retrieve the measurements I'll share them. Good luck.

    I made these with 1/2`` wire they are 1` H x2` W x3` L . I used hog rings to put the wire together. I used tie wraps for the re-bar weights. I am using plastic lids for the bait lid and the dump lid. sorry for the late post but work gets in the way of every thing! By the time I get off the summer run should be going on. Can`t wait to give them a try. Will post the outcome.

    How much shrimp do people typically catch in their traps during a night of dipping?
