Crab Daddy Traps

Folding crab traps are a recent innovation that is changing the face of crabbing from crab docks and the sandy shore.

The Crab Daddy Trap in the open position is a proven folding crab trap that outperforms conventional crab rings and other folding crab traps. 

Ivan ‘Crab Daddy’ Humphrey is the maker of the Crab Daddy Trap. He makes each one and sells them through local merchants in Lincoln City.

He often wears his favorite tee shirt. (see below) If you see him, stop and ask about crabbing on Siletz Bay and his crab traps.
