Anyone every try using rubberized spray paint to re-inforce the twine ring traps?
Also any other mods that could help catch better with them would be appreciated.

I know i could always buy the metal
ones but they wont be used too often, just when i take my girls (5 & 8). Tried the trotline with them this past weekend and figured out they aren't quite ready for it yet

they need a small float at the junction of the three lines that are tied to the outer ring--the float keeps those lines off the ring so the crab walks under them and so you don't flip the crab off the lines if they are under him.

And replace the three factory lines tied to the ring with stronger nylon line and tie them to your nylon float line.

If you rinse them and dry them after outings they can last for years.
