Matthewrylee12: What are your thoughts on painting them with spray paint? Do you think the
paint smell will deter the crawdads from going in them? I ask because I
feel like these traps are easily spotted in the river and might get
Mark Rutte: So, how to give the trap like a better beat and bass?
Crochet Baby: Almost forgot. The best bait we have ever found to attract crawdads is hot
dogs and bologna. LOL. We would just throw a piece out and watch them come
to it and catch them before they got ahold of it. They would come out
almost immediately and would fight over it. We would just grab them all up.
annika smith: Darn it 4 percent now ill never know
Matthewrylee12: I made these and pulled quite a catch! What surprised me is that California
doesn't have a limit on how many you can use. I called the fish and game
office and they confirmed that, so I made four of them. Thanks for the
iwantosavemoney: this was very informative I started making a crawdad trap and got hung up
on how to make the funnel. thanks for the information. good video
jronche: Thanks for the video. Watching you catch crawfish inspired me to build some
traps and try it myself. Built 4 over the weekend then got them in the
water for a 20 hour soak. Caught 27 on the maiden voyage, not too bad. Good
luck the rest of the season!
James Singkeo: I'm from MN I want to give this a try but not sure about the regulations.I
read the rules but don't really get it if You can help be thankful. Dose
the trap size have to be a certain length? Love your videos keep it up and
keep it coming
Jonathan Hemond: when do you start catching them??
Mohamad Fariez: thanks for your teknik ...
Naturesown Path: Hey there Joe, love the videos, we Mainers do call them Crayfish, but I
lived in STL for a decade, so, Crawdad, Crawfish and Mudbug all works for
me! Cant wait to try this and the American Indian fish trap (a video I saw
elsewhere) for some free natural food...so exciting, and my kids will
totally love it!
Crochet Baby: When I was a kid I went crawdad hunting with my grandpa and my brother. We
would catch tons of them by hand. I have never heard or even thought about
using a trap to catch them until I saw your first video in this series.
Thank you so much for sharing how to make one. I think me and my cousins
may just have to make some of these and try them out. Of course, we will
still catch some by hand with the kids....just to much fun to skip out on.
Matt Nartel: This must be the best & genius instruction how to make fish trap on youtube
that I found so far! Thank you so much for your sharing.
bjames321: The cone threw me for a loop. I am glad that you have this video posted.
Thanks a million
Sharon Arthur: I love crawfish hey my name is mykeon
wes normandin: YA, but. you didn't suck the brains out like A. Zimmern would do!!
Daniel Aleckson: Nice videos! Haven't tried cray fishing before but it looks fun so I'm
gonna start it up this spring...When you make the cone part, do you make
the 4 inch measure first, then measure 9 inches off both ends of that?
Rosamund Ali: My head up my but
Ellis W: If you wanna avoid twisting wire use zip ties.
Rosamund Ali: My head up my but
mrbluenun: This is completely off the top of my head here, Have you ever used a
similar ½" mesh but in a plastic like you might see in a garden? Might be
easier to work with, not so sharp, all depends whether the fish will cut
through it or not?
And thanks for the upload. I love to watch this stuff, but trying to catch
crayfish much less lobsters in just any river or lake in the UK just isn’t
possible unless you are prepared to brake the law. I think it is the
countryside and first come first served but you know there is a law for
everything and it is NEVER in favour of the poor man .
Naturesown Path: Just out of curiosity, I 've seen a lot of square traps. What is the reason
for you making them round? (I think they'd stack well when square, but
you're probably not doing this on a massive scale, so, is it just easier?)
I'm really looking into this idea, just curious what your 'druthers are and
why, for analytical reasons. thx.
Naturesown Path: what a view out of your window, there, by the way! Nice!
Randy J: hope that you vacuumed the rug right afterward before your wife got a wire
in the toe :)
ptkenterprise70: pay attention to your area regulations on wire size..in my area it is 1
inch wire mesh and a certain regulation for the opening...great video guys
god bless you and yours
JoeandZachSurvival: DAMIT hahaha. I just went and put that in the tags after I read this lol
lol. I had forgot all about that. Thank you so much for the comment. Joe
Hunter Ruggiero: if you dont mind, if your up for it, will you maybe make a vid talking
about the traps and the zips because i would absolutely love to know how
they turn out.
JoeandZachSurvival: Thanks Dy. I agree with you but after reading the regulations here in MN I
found out I have to use the bigger squares because they wont allow us to
catch minnows lol. You are correct though, it did catch the minnows. Thanks
darren kawasaki: thats spot on i started to make one 4 weeks ago made the tube but the end
bits i cud not get it right but now iv seen this video i shall have it
finished for the weekend ive used rope to put my one together is that ok
?crayfish curry next week
mammysinthekitchen: It was good to see that Zach is back...I was beginning to wonder if he had
gotten lost :) Thanks for sharing.
JoeandZachSurvival: Thanks 125. Go to the channel page, I have videos JUST on that subject
where I use different baits and you get to see the results. Going to the
store and buying cheap chicken livers will always work but things like
bread etc works good to. Check out the things I tried and read the comments
people left, I learned alot from them and I am sure it will help you as
well. Thanks again. Joe
JoeandZachSurvival: Thanks, we did another 88 today but pulled the traps for a couple days
because they have had between 4 and 9 inches of rain in the last 24 hours
about a hundred miles north of here and that water will be flowing downhill
lol lol. I will try to get the video of the weekends trapping loaded
tonight. Thanks. Joe
JoeandZachSurvival: I think the person was saying that the light attracted them, I will have to
get one and set two traps side by side one with the glowstick and see what
happens. Thanks. Joe
JoeandZachSurvival: We thought about that when we were doing it but I was more concerned about
getting yelled at if I got any black magic marker on the white carpet
hahaha. We did get it all cleaned up but yes perhaps a blanket or something
would have been a good choice but by the time I thought of that I had
already made a big mess so it was too late. haha. Thanks. Joe
Stone Smith: Yeah. I live in the south (Mississippi), but people call them both. So I
JoeandZachSurvival: Its trhe 1/2 inch squares, some call it hardware cloth, I call in rabbit
floor cage wire. Thank You. Joe
threehvacguys: someone left a comment about using glowsticks. curious if you tried this?
if so how was your haul from it?
minbound: Nice job Joe, I will have to make a couple of these in the near future, I
have a bunch of 1/2" hardware cloth left over from my planter cages. Thanks
for sharing my friend.
Waldhandwerk: Amazing Joe, great tutorial! Good luck, Sepp
JoeandZachSurvival: I had the privilege while down in Louisiana this winter (videos are posted)
of eating real boiled craWfish (as they say it down there) from a place
that does it VERY well. Reno and Hopes in Sorrento LA. They were sooooo
awesome but yes you throw out the straight tails. They taste delicious.
JoeandZachSurvival: Thanks Nick, yea someone had said that so I quick put it in at least the
tags lol we got over a hundred this weekend, I will get that video up
eventually. Thanks for commenting. I hope you and Sean and Gracie are doing
kaos702lv: Great video thanks!
threehvacguys: outa 2 traps set last night in my lewis river holes i got 22. not bad i
guess. but still not the numbers im used to. 18 in one and 4 in the other.
but thats better than 3 to 6 like its been doing. good news is there doing
great in my tank i made from a lawn trailer with a 140 gallon an hour pump
and a little bubbler from an aquarium. and things are starting to warm up
around here. once i get a few hundred going to boil them up for wifes
H Miller: nice
Eddie S: nice looking trap there joe, but what do you put the bate in?you know the
livers will flot to the top ,tell me if i am wrong,maybe i will see you
load the bate on the next one, thanks for the video,
PlanoPrincess: lol I couldn't stop thinking they should be doing that on a blanket. How
are they going to get all that wire up without messing up the vacuum. Men!
Guy in the Rusty Truck: Hey thanks for the great videos. Here in North Carolina we had a overly
soaked spring and summer didn't need a trap because they were all over the
yard. Of course the yard was under about six to eight inches of water for a
good portion of time. Your videos and the Crayfish infestation I had have
caused me to get out my rabbit hutch wire (which just happens to be exactly
the same as you are using) and pop a few off now.) Still finding the little
morsels around too. Dropping Traps this weekend.
