We purchased the Crab Max©, and Crab Daddy© traps and have been renting them for six (6) years. There are perfect traps that do very well in the rental market.
We not only rent traps but clean and cook the Crabs. We only record what our customers catch by using our rental boats and Hand-Line from the shore to view the reports. CLICK HERE.
Since our customers use these traps and communicate any of their problems with the traps, we started making enhancements to the Crab Max© traps.
We have decided to start manufacturing our own Crab Trap Family, the Crab Trappers©. The first in the family is the Crab Trapper©, which costs $45 (not including Hand-Line). We use the same steel used in the Crab Max with added enhancement.

The Hand-Line consists of four (4) parts
Hand-line is mounted on Plastic Holder, which will not rot.
The heavy-duty construction of the Crab Trapper requires more than 220 lbs to break any part of the Hand-Line or connections………….. Fewer lost traps
The Smell Bag lures crabs with the smell of the bait, After 5-6 minutes, the Trap is pulled, and there are more Crabs caught than in regular traps.
According to the experts, Crab finds food and appeals to their sense of smell. Crabs rely on their sense of smell to find prey. Crabs have chemoreceptors that detect chemicals in the water released by their prey. These chemoreceptors are located on a crab’s antennae. These are long, segmented appendages near the Crab’s eyes that have both chemoreceptors and allow them to feel their surroundings.
Crabs don’t smell through any organ-like a nose but instead use microscopic “smelling” organisms. Therefore, anything that has a strong smell can attract a whole host of these creatures.
Crab Attractant is an oil. The oil is quite attractive to crabs. It also contains unique amino acids that give it unparalleled versatility in going after all kinds of other species. It is a commercial product you can buy, but it’s made of natural ingredients like anise oil, fish oil, amino acids, and salmon egg juice. Soak the provided sponge or marinate any bait with this add-on oil for about three hours before using it.
To see independent opinions of Crab Attractant, We use ProCure and Smelly Jelly as Crab Attraction.

Using a crab mallet and shaking the crab will cut your crab-picking time to minutes rather than hours. The crab mallet is used to humanely kill the crabs by turning them over onto their back and striking at their abdominal flap, humanly killing them before cleaning and cooking them.
The Mallet offers several advantages.
