    If you need some cray fish for bait and dont have a trap you can make a cheap one in 5 minutes. All you need is a 2 liter bottle, knife, tape,thin rope, bait, (cut fish) and a rock. first you cut the top off the bottle about 4 to 5 inches below the base of the neck of the bottle. Now the bottle is an open container so you put the rock and bait in then make a small hole in the side of the bottle and thred the end of the rope down into the hole and tie a knot so the rope can't side out of the hole. put the top of the bottle on the open end of the container upsode down so that the neck is on the inside of the trap. Then tape the top to the body. set it where you are going to get the cray fish from and let it sit there for a few hours.
    (Dont forget to take the cap off the bottle first)

    hope this helps ​
