    Trapping is a lot more practical than spending active time hunting or fishing. If I'm hungry, I'm not going to worry much about the sport of fishing. The first fish trap I learned was one of the super simple plastic bag style and one that can catch really tiny fish with a slightly modified plastic soda bottle. We have wire to make more modern fish traps to use off of the dock at home or in the stream at the bug-out cabin.

    Lately though, I have become fascinated by the larger primitive fish traps. Has anyone ever tried anything like this: http://willowhavenoutdoor.com/featu...imitive-funnel-fish-trap-that-keep-on-giving/

    If so, was it worth the effort involved? I would think that you'd only have to do it once or twice and then just check it occasionally like any other trap.

    Yes they work but you need more than just one or two you have to set them like a trap line here one I made for Earth day a few years back I also make and set crawfish traps to with these kinds of traps other animals like to check them too I had a otter clean out all of my crawfish traps more than a few times.
