Offshore Angler™ 10-1/2'' Box Crab Trap
First of all the product comes without an instruction, one must realize that the picture serves as a makeshift instruction sheet. It took 4 of us, the shopkeeper, 2 other customers and myself to put this thing together. Also, by the end of the day the string attached to the trap was frayed making the trap unusable.

This is junk
Do not waste your money. This is a gimmick.
Nothing against BPS, but I really can't image a situation where this trap will work.
Maybe a 9 year old to play in a pond in his back yard with NO expectations.
This really is a waste. Very thin steel wire, very flimsy.
This is NOT a real product.

Not user friendly!
I had tried crabbing for the first time while on vacation to OBX last year. We used a larger crab pot that was available at our beach house. This year i figured I'd buy another to double my catch rate. I mistook this trap for a pot when I purchased it. However, because I had it when we went on vacation this year, the kids were anxious to try it out. It comes with NO instructions. I'm an educated guy, but unless you were an avid crab fisherman and had used one of these before, it's like trying to solve a Rubik's Cube to set it up properly. We never did figure it out so that it would work 100%, or its just a poor design and will never work 100%. Also, its black. We were crabbing in only 3ft of water. You cant see it on the bottom so if a crab was in the trap, you dont know when to set it. Maybe if it was painted white and had instructions I could give it a better review.

It is great quality, but no instuctions. I when I opend the package no instructions. I tried to do what the picture showed didnt work. I tried for an hour but nothing happend. This is the first problem Ive ever had with bass pro. And the line on it is horrible the line is so easy to break it could barely hold 5 pounds. Dont buy unless you know how to build it all ready.
