    Default crabhawk crab traps

    Has anyone used one of these? Thought they might be fun for the kids if they work.

    No I havent tried them.
    Where do you plan to try them?
    For Tanners in Cook Inlet I wouldn't bother as you would need quite a bit of weigh tjust to hold them down in the tides and current.
    For Dungeness in southeast you might have some success.

    I've used them on the Oregon and Washington coasts. They work very well in certain situations. They work best at piers and boat docks. You can cast them out with a heavy rod/reel outfit or just drop them to the bottom, as you would a crab ring. I have used them off rock jetties, and they work just as well, but it's very easy to lose one in the rocks. I've lost a couple while casting off jetties. The current/tides takes them into and under the rocks. When this happens you won't be getting it back. At $15 bucks each, it's painful.
