|Our commercial prawn traps are utilised primarily for spot prawns (pandalus platycerous). A range of sizes and styles covers fishng conditions from California through British Columbia and Alaska.
All sizes and styles are proven producers. Preferences are often determined by local fishing conditions, vessel size and regulations.
Frame material can be mild steel (plastic dipped) or stainless steel. Additional weight can be provided with a heavier bottom ring or a double bottom ring.
Tunnel rings are standard 3" stainless. They are woven into the web and aligned with the bait cup with rubber banding.
Web is 1.5" mesh sewed to the frame with .25" poly rope top and bottom. A bottom drawstring allows for quick opening of the traps and easy access to the suspended bait cup.
Tapered design allows for tight stacking in transit. Most traps come complete with a braided poly bridle and 5/16" or 3/8" stainless snaps. See the supply page for bait cups, snaps and ground line.
