Securing it it easy tho.
take a snap from your tackle box & attach it to one end.
take a rope, 80# fishing line, or a small chain & attach it to the snap.
Take the other end of this line & attach it to something on shore that will not move...like a tree.
Give the trap about 12 hours & by then it should be full.
Basically anything that will not turn to mush in water will work just fine.
stay away from breads(they turn to mush), you're prolly better off using small bits of meat....this can be small fish that you caught by accident, beef, pork, chicken, etc.
BPS does sell a minnow trap that looks identical to the crawdad trap...it's just that the hole in the minnow trap is smaller.
minnow trap has a 1 inch hole
crawdad trap has a 1.5 inch hole
since I have never seen a live shrimp, I can not say with any certainty.
these traps are made the way they are because they were designed to catch 1 certain species of aquatic life. To use this trap for anything other than crawdads is a gamble...meaning it might work, it might not.
