I have started making and selling these traps for about a month now. It started with the angled wall perch trap, and expanded into the crab, crawfish and bait pens on the recommendations of my customers. It's become a full-part time job as these things are selling like hotcakes. You might have seen them on craigslist. They are galvanized steel because they will last longer than the 'vinyl covered' versions, because the metal in the VC's are not galvanized and will rust once it is in contact with the TX coast salt water. I grew up using these as a boy down in Port Mansfield, and there are still some down there that can still be used, 30+ yrs later. These prices are for local delivery/handoff in the Houston/Galveston area. For anyone 'outside' the Htown/Galvtown area, the shipping is around 13 bucks in TX. Msg for details, questions, or any other requests. Thanks for looking. Additional pics on request.
$50 (24x24x12)
$90 (24x24x24)
$30 (12x8x24)
$50 (24x24x12)
$40 (24x24x12)

This was just from a trip to Seadrift and by using scrambled eggs in a panty hose as bait. Unbelievable

it is the 12x8x24 one for $30. Just throw in a barely cracked open can of dog food, in the back side, for bait. Ax3
