Offshore Angler Double Ring Wire Mesh Crab Net
crab rings that work
These traps are perfect for use when setting a long line of crab traps from a boat. They pack flat and take up little room in the boat. When lowered to the bottom they lay flat and very seldom get twisted in the fall. When checking them simply pull straight up with a steady pressure on the line and they open and lift the crabs to the surface and into the boat. They only thing I change is the bridle line that comes on them. It is very thin and does not hold up to repeated use. I change it out for a nylon line and it works fine.

Good Crab Trap
Picked this up at Bass Pro when I bought the star Trap. It works so much better. Only problem is the kite string that is used on the trap breaks down really quick in salt/brackish water. Lost some nice crabs due to this since when one line parts the whole net tips to one side and allows the crabs to escape. I eventually after a couple of hours of use had replaced all the lines on the net with some nylon cord. Now it works great!

These nets far surpassed what I expected for the price. They are a great quality, and work great. I zip tie my bait bags to the bottome and let them drop. I pulled in a 5, 8 and 9 inch blue at one time in it . I would highly recommend these to anyone that wants to have more fun while crabbing, and the Grandkids love it when they are bringing it up and see the crabs in the net. They make for a great time.

So easy Kids CAN us it
First thing I did was changed the string. It comes with some thin string that is sure to break soon after deploying it. Then I took this out to check and see how easy it was to use. MY 2 year old had fun dipping it in the water and pulling out a her itty bitty crab. Kids and adult can have fun on the water with these. the only thing that could make this better is build in bait clips/holders.
