Has anybody in South Louisiana used the open top crab traps like they use on the East coast, instead of the double ringed nets we are accustomed to. if so give me the pro and cons to the trap compared to the ring net. Thanks.

No I haven't.  But my next trip to the WYE I'll pick up a dozen and try them out.

BTW welcome to the BCA.  They are a great bunch of guys.

Ron, I have been making ring nets for over 40 years. I have all the info to make the topless traps. I wanted to see if they would work well in shallow water. I fish Point-au-Chene, Lake Desallends, and Lake Ponchatrain.

T topless traps are great , they tale up less room . you can stack them inside of one and other , the only thing , when you are pulling them up you have to pull fast so the crab can't climb out . good luck
