Perch Trap - Four Leaf Clover Style

This Four Leaf Clover perch trap is a tested tried and true design, and it's been a staple bait trap that fishermen have trusted for decades. Our rendition of this trap was designed with three major goals in mind. We wanted to produce a high-quality trap that 1) catches the perch FAST, 2) will last for years when cared for properly, and 3) won't break the bank. 

We have built and sold thousands of these traps over the years, and we confidently believe that we have accomplished our goals. This is truly a great trap that will catch the bait quickly.  

Perch Trap Build and Dimensions


  • Large - 23 in x 23 in x 11.5 in
  • Medium - 23 in x 23 in x 8 in
Build Notes:
  • Rust Resistant Construction
  • Constructed from 19 gauge, 1/2" x 1/2", animal cage quality galvanized hardware cloth. This is a thinner wire but can last for years if the trap is cared for properly. 
  • Fastened with premium aluminum hog rings for longevity. 
  • Marine-grade bungee to hold the doors in place. 

Want a more durable and heavier gauge option Perch Trap? 

We are now offering a PREMIUM quality 1/2 x 1/2 inch cloverleaf perch trap. If you want a perch trap in the 1/2 x 1/2 inch wire that is more durable than the hardware cloth, check out our PREMIUM Quality Clover Perch Trap (linked below).
