Construction Of Our Bait Fish Traps:

As stated above, our traps are hand-made in Texas by our company. We take pride in every trap we build, and we stand by our products. Our traps are constructed with the highest quality materials, from animal cage quality welded wire with a bonded PVC coating to stainless steel and aluminum fasteners. Our traps are built to last. We are currently a direct-to-consumer company, so you will not find any of our traps in a physical store at this time.

Lead Time For Our Handmade Traps

We are a small company... no need to pretend to be otherwise. Since all of our bait fish traps are handmade in-house, it simply takes us some time to process our orders. This is especially true in the Spring when ALL our inventory sells out. 

Lead time is always listed at the top of our site in the yellow notification bar but is typically around 4-7 business days. Rush shipment is an option, and will typically cost about $20 per order. If you are in a tight spot and need your trap very fast, please give us a call to discuss rush shipment.
