    i'm no expert, but i believe they were intended for use in current. i personally prefer a slight current, when using a basket, not too much though. that is assuming, that you are trying to keep them alive.

    I like to use it in a moderate current with the opening facing the current.

    Can you guys explain what a fish basket is, to a dummy from west texas? I was thinking that it was the wire basket you use to keep bait and fish alive. The ones you throw over the side of the boat. After reading the thread, i am not so sure?

    2ft x 6ft traps that you pack full of old cheese. Check them a couple days later and they are usually full of catfish (eating size) The baskets I got will hold about 120 cats a time. Usually I leave them out for three to four days at a time. I have a couple baskets forsale if anybody is wanting some.

    Now if i could catch 120 cats on rod and reel in 3 or 4 days I'd be the happiest guy on earth.

    Never had that kind of luck on rod and reel. But I agree with you I'd be pretty happy.
