Does any one have plans or drawings to make your own perch trap?

Jeff, it is your lucky day... LOL.... the following link will take you to a world you didn't know existed... it has recipes, tips, techniques, opinions and every other thing needed to catch fish, including plans for traps... think we prefer to call them minnow traps or craw fish traps as it is legal in all states to trap them, but it is illegal in some states to trap perch....check your local state laws....

I found that out the hard way. Moving from Texas to Kansas via Uncle Sam I went to catch some bait with a cast net in a pond on post. Lo and behold it was not the smartest thing to do. Sunfish, bluegill, perch and whatnnot are not game fish in Texas, but they are in Kansas. I was let go with a warning but I tell you what, I carry the rule book with me every time I go fishing now days.
Coondog in the link above^^ on page 3 you will find a section on "Homemade Bait traps." Click on "A Bluegill Trap You can Build Yourself." This is a very good trap!!
Careful it is illegal in some states.:wink:
