    i have pics of what they should look like and you need to leave them in water for at least a week. the ones i do i leave for a week and get about anywhere from 100 to 250 each trap. if need any info im me be happy to help you

    Kyle, if you want to build some traps, Joe is the man. He catches and uses eels all the time.
