Make your own DIY CRAB TRAPS

Crab traps are expensive! Luckily, they’re not hard to make. This video will show you how to make your own DIY Blue Crab traps for cheap. Once you get the hang of what you’re doing, they don’t take long to make. I made 15 traps in one day. I used coated hex wire (poultry wire) to make these. My materials list for 15 traps is below.

Each trap will take 10 feet of wire, three plastic escape rings, 1.5 feet of bungie cord, a few hog rings and a trap hook. Then it’ll need to be rigged with a float that’s clearly marked with an R for recreation. You can find details on trap requirements by visiting the Florida Wildlife commission website. Each person setting recreational crab traps in Florida will need a saltwater fishing license with the Blue Crab trap add on. You’ll get a set of trap ID numbers that you’ll mark your traps with. Be sure to check the current regs. I may have missed something and they’re subject to change.
