need help making cocahoe traps
im wondering if anyone has any diagrams or plans for making your own floating cocahoe minnow traps to put out for catching your own bait when at camp?
im not talking about those little basket traps you buy that catch a handfull of minnows but im looking to build one designed to catch 50-100 minnows or more for the whole crew to use without buying (expensive) and setting out 2 dozen basket traps.
what i had in mind was a floating trap made from screen mesh and wood that could be left in the water and picked up the next day so you can see why im looking for something simple and cheap in case its lost or stolen.
after being caught i would keep them in a floating box next to the dock to be used as needed.
thanks in advance for any help
