I have had so much e-mail asking how I make my crab traps, so I decided to put it on my web site.
It was a lot of work but it's finally done. If you would count your labor you can buy them cheaper then you can make them. If you don't and like to make things like me then you can make them cheaper. If this helps you in any way then it was worth is. This is the way I do it and there might be a better way but I made many changes before coming up with this way. Let me know what you think.

Just made 20 traps and this is a break down of what the supplies cost me per trap. This don't count the time and gas running after the supplies.

Hyd tubing - .17
String - .45
Spring - .46
1x2 wire - 2.33
1/2 x 1/2 wire - .08
9 gauge wire - .64
Cable ties - .08
Total - $4.21 per trap

i cant for the life of me find 9 gauge wire.  checked home depot, lowes, true value, and some mom and pop places, no luck.  anyone have a better idea within a reasonable drive of baltimore? there aren't any tractor supplies nearby either.

thats the problem, shipping weight just kills any chance of saving money by making these myself.
