I just recvd this product after ordering it yesterday thanks to Prime membership(amazing). I have played with this thing and to be honest cannot see why there would be any issues with this product unless user error. The 2 sections have opposing loop/stud locking system on the bottom and the top has a simple squeeze clamp system which takes a lot of pressure to compress and slip off. I havent take it to the water yet but would recommend a good cleaning first since there is a film on it from the coating that only soap and soft clothe will do.

I cant wait to test this out considering I only spent $10 on this item, when it cost me $2.50 for a dozen minnows this past weekend.

*update 10/1/12, Took this out to the lake to do some fishing, dropped a can of tuna flavored cat food inside and dipped it just a few feet out and let it sit 15min and had a half dozen minnows and baby sunfish. Excellent product, had I left it out longer I would have had a ton more but time was limited for me.

It works fine. Easy to assemble. Replacement clips can be found. Don't forget to check with your local conservation or wildlife officers about the rules regarding having your traps properly tagged with your contact information.

Proven trap design, well made. First time out, in January, in Montana, in a small feeder stream, caught about 150 minnows in three of these traps in about 1 hr. Baited traps with dry cat and dog food and a half slice of bread. I prefer the black coated traps to help camouflage traps against unattended theft. I use 550 camouflage para-cord to secure the trap to underbrush while camouflaging the cord tie off point. Mark the tie-off location with a fresh broken tree branch or perhaps 3 rocks set in a triangle, anything you will recognize but a passerby will ignore! My friend made me promptly order 2 more minnow traps for him and his brother after witnessing my immediate success...So much more rewarding to ice-fish with minnows you caught!

Works great. Catch tons of minnows and other fish in a nearby stream. Sometimes it doesn't work cause the fish just nibble the bait through the mesh, it probably would work better if you created some sort of mesh box in the middle of the trap so the fish are forced to swim through the side openings and can't just eat through the mesh openings. Will try to fix something up and see how it goes.

Bottom line, I've probably used 50 times and caught over a 1000 small fish over the last year. Besides a little bit of rust, still working like new.

This works fine but I had to use some bread ties to close the gap a little as minnows were getting out. I find this issue with most. The bigger minnows get trapped but the smaller ones just slip right thru.

I just used the minnow trap for the first time .It worked amazingly well ,the first time I caught over 30 minnows in less than 10 minutes.All I had to do was put a little piece of bread in the trap and the minnows just absolutely destroy it.I have two ponds on my property,one that I just stocked and the fish are finally getting big enough to eat smaller fish. The other pond is where I am getting my minnows from because a pond will naturally stunt the fish down over 20 years or so.This product will work very well for but also for anyone who needs minnows for fishing.The technique that I found out works best is making small balls of bread and leaving one piece to float in the trap which really draws the minnows in quickly,then It's just a matter of opening the trap and dropping the minnows in a bucket or live well.This product works very well and does a very good job at catching all size minnows from just a little bigger than an inch to around five inches .I am very happy with the quality and performance of this minnow trap and look forward to using
It for years to come.

I have a huge "pet" yellow perch in a 40 gallon tank. I use the minnow trap to catch food for him, in a local creek. works grweat - put in some stale bread and cat food, attach rope and fling it out. Stays closed and provides a plentiful supply of minnows for the bass.
