The Crab Trapper has a round net, not a square net. You can see the difference when a Crab Max overlays a Crab Trapper Trap.
We have increased the Crab Netting area by nearly 50% just by changing the shape of the Trap.
The Crab Trapper has nearly 50% more crab netting area than the other two traps.
Area of circle = radius X radius X 3,1417 …. Crab Trapper, when folded out, makes a circle with a radius of 12 ….12 X 12 X 3.1417 = 452 sq inches
Area of square = width X height …. Crab Max or Enhanced Crab trap both when folded out make square width = 17 …height =17…… 17 x 17 = 289 sq inches
Circle Area minus Square Area (452-289)=163 inches increase and 163/289 = .56% more a 50% increase
The Crab Trapper uses .125 Stainless Steel instead of .091 steel. The .125 enables the Crab Trapper to be a circle instead of a triangle..
When any spring-loaded trap is not in use, it springs open. The Crab Trapper has a small holder that can be used whenever the trap is not in use, making it easier to carry.
Smell Bag Bag .. The trap lures crabs with the smell of the bait, and after 5-6 minutes the Trap are pulled in, and there are more Crabs caught than 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 allow them to detect chemicals in the water that are 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 its surroundings.
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 with this add-on oil for about three hours before using it. We use ProCure as Crab Attraction

A crab snares are placed outside of the normal Crab Trapper. The smell in the Crab Trapper bait lures crabs, but the do not entry the trap.
After 5 -6 minutes, the crabber pulls in the trap. The snare loops will close around any claws of any crabs outside the regular trap will be snared. Any unfortunate crab outside the trap but in the snares is caught. If you’re fast enough and keep enough pressure on the line, the crab will not have to hurry away

Dead fish may not seem appealing to you, but crabs love them. We said earlier that fresh is best, but dead fish is one area where you can make the exception. Fish are pretty fragrant, to begin with, and once they start to rot, their stink will be even more noticeable. You can use any rotten fish. Often, bait shops or fish markets will give them away. They’re cheap and readily available, too. You can use fresh or frozen fish, but the benefit of frozen fish is that it will break down more slowly than fresh fish, giving you more time between checking traps.
Some options include tuna and mackerel. When baiting with tuna, some people even punch holes in a tuna can, then lower the can into the trap before placing the trap in the water. Fish are quite attractive to other animals, including seals. Seals will not only steal your bait, but they’ll also do their best to remove the bait from the trap, too.
Crab Baits not to use
Clams are crab favorites. These are part of a crab’s natural diet, so you shouldn’t have to do much hard work to convince the crabs to take a bite. Plus, they are legal to use in most areas. However, it is essential to note that clams might not be as effective if you are crabbing in an area with a large population of these creatures already. The crabs might be bored by this additional offering.
Mink carcasses can be tough to get your hands on in some areas, but if you can, they work as superior crab bait. Why? They’re super stinky. Commonly used in commercial crabbing operations in Oregon, mink is stinky, oily, and incredibly versatile. The oil will stay on your hands for a while, so you might want to wear gloves.
Any Meat or Animal Parts
If you don’t want to spend all your money purchasing meat, consider using readily available meat. Discarded organ meat from butcher shops is a good alternative.
There are other animal pieces you can use in your crab traps, too. You can also use a roadkill. The benefit of roadkill is that it is easy to come by just about anywhere you might live. It also gives off an incredibly powerful odor. Choose options like raccoon, squirrel, rabbit, or other animal carcasses for the best results.
Other Human Foods
You can attach old bacon, bits of cheese, hot dogs, or even some bread to your crab trap. But remember – the stinkier, the better, and oilier foods tend to work best, too. The benefit of using human foods is that they tend to be much less stinky (and therefore easier to handle) than rotting meat. Some people even use unique household items like cat food or dog food to entice crabs.
