High density, high impact polyethylene construction makes the Fathoms Plus Trap almost maintenance free. There is no nailing, scraping or dipping required. The Fathoms Plus Trap can't rust, won't rot and resists marine growth. It is the perfect trap for rough weather and is strong enough to withstand the stress and stain of many highly productive seasons.
The Fathoms Plus Trap is contoured to take advantage of the natural actions of shellfish. Entrances are accessible from any approach within a 180 degree radius, so entry for the catch is much easier. Regular box traps tend to hinder the catch by requiring the species to search for entry in a manner contrary to natural behavior.
Ten strong yet light weight Fathoms Plus Traps stacked weigh 110 lbs., stand 45" high and occupy approximately the same cubic space as 2 conventional traps. Yet baited and in the water there is as much space inside our trap as any other. The traps patented shape allows them to nestle together allowing you to carry 5 times the traps on-board resulting in more productivity.
Tested In hot and cold temperature extremes, the trap will not lose its manufactured shape. Absolutely rust proof no electrolysis, these are the only traps which open quickly into two identical halves for handy stacking. No need to remove weights, no disassembly. To stack one fits completely inside another. The sturdy, self- securing system is especially convenient when underway.
