Bauer Prawn Trap Mini 18" x 18"
It takes a little more wire and time, to build these traps compared to other wire mesh traps with steep entrances, You do not want a trap with a steep entrance,
Just a word from Bauer Sea Traps,
Our wire mesh traps, with their unique entrances out produce the traditional commercial and sport cone shaped net mesh traps every time.
it just doesn't work as well as a trap built the way we make ours.
Nor do you want a trap that uses plastic mesh tunnel, they do no stand the test of time, the sun makes plastic funnel entrances brittle and then they break apart.
Commercial Lobster fishermen use Aquamesh® wire for their traps. They get an average of 8 to 15 years or more, out of their traps.
The traps I build will last you a minimum of 15 years, and if there are any problems with the workmanship or materials used in the traps I build,
Just bring them back to our shop, and I will fix, or replace them FREE of charge.
I am proud of the traps I build, and I will not sell anything that is not made with the best material money can buy. I won't use junk China wire, just to make a buck or two!
I build every trap my self, I use only Stainless Steel hardware to assemble the traps. I use proper ring clinching tools, benders, and my traps do not scratch your boat!
Lately we are seeing knock-off traps being built locally, with wire from China. sold at lumber yards or on used somewhere
(Before you spend money on these traps, think about where the wire is coming from, do you really want to spend money on this, it will fall apart in a year or two.
For about the same price you can get a superior made and constructed trap, that will last way longer, and keep jobs at home.)
All of the material I use to make our traps, comes from North America. Not from China, Italy, or some other country. We use only top quality shock cord,
made by Novatec Braids in Yarmouth N.S. Canada. and Stainless Steel crimp rings from the US.
Many Trap builders advertise that they use Riverdale's Aquamesh® but some, even unknowingly are using the China wire, sold to them as Aquamesh® by there supplier.
We buy our wire from Riverdale in the US.
Word of mouth is the best advertising, every one that buys one or two of these traps comes back for more.
They all sell there cone shaped net mesh traps on used everywhere, or to some other unsuspecting fisherman.
