    Default Home made crayfish/crab/lobster pots

    Hi,
    Has anyone had a go at making their own fishing pots or traps? I'd be really keen to see your results!
    Cheers,

    Take the spokes out and replace with a net. Not that good as an overnight trap, but good as a drop net.

    Years ago I modified an old keep net. Really easy to do, you just need paracord and can make 2 or three from a 10ft net.

    Thanks for the info guys. I think I'll give the bike wheel thing a go and have a few other ideas too.
    Cheers.
