I put today to good use and final rigged all 20 of the topless Foxymate traps I bought from Polecat at SFII. They seem ok. I had to perform some tweaking on the doors, re-tied the draw strings, sinched up the draw string knots going to the doors, etc. I am looking forward to trying them 1/2 and 1/2 with my current 4 door C traps with tops.
I know a lot of you swear by topless traps. Well, I am gonna see for myself. I hope your right.

Put your experience to good use and come work on my traps.[grin]
I have not yet begun to make any improvements on mine, but I will one day soon.
I also put my spare time today to good use by baiting 2400' of snood line with freshly thawed necks left over from last year. After the C & R Striper flats season closes I will begin harrassing the crustaceans.
I plan to be steaming crabs by next weekend.[wink]

Will you re-freeze that TL until next weekend? Where will you be crabbing next weekend?
C&R Striper fishing on the flats must be real cool.

I keep it in a refrigerator that is turned to max cool. It will freeze the necks well enough to keep for weeks, if necessary. I usually begin on the southern eastern shore rivers early in the year.
Yes, Striper fishing on the flats with top water lures is a blast!!!
If you haven't tried it, you should put it on your "To Do" list.
