    Are you talking only about eel traps Keith? I have never trapped eels and haven't even seen a trap for em, but I do build my own crawdad traps. I don't know if we even have eels down here in AZ but would be interested also in hearing any info on building these.

    Keith, how are you using the eels? We have commercial trappers here at home, not sure about recreational trapping regs, if any. I've never used them for bait, but have been thinking about it. I remember seeing something on the internet about making a trap from pvc pipe with holes drilled in it or something. Maybe do a search?
