These traps are constructed of heavy duty 12 gauge wire mesh and steel rods. They are galvanized to provide resistance to rust and corrosion. They feature spring loaded doors with a special locking system that allows them to perform well when placed at any angle. They are strong, durable, and will last for years.
Bait these traps with dead fish, or meat of any kind and secure it to the bottom of the trap behind the trip pan. Once the bait is in place, drop the trap into the water making sure some of the trap is above water to allow captured turtles to breath.
Collapsible turtle traps can be folded flat in seconds for easy storage. They are also less expensive to ship. We offer rigid turtle traps in the same sizes as the collapsible. Rigid traps are generally stronger than their collapsible counterpart.
