You might think setting a minnow trap is simple, but depending on the conditions, it can be difficult. A trap that is overly complicated makes the job even harder. If you are using a bait type trap, look for a model that features a built-in bait box. You’ll also want one that is big enough to hold a lot of minnows, but that is not so large that you can’t easily handle it by yourself. Traps that have doors or are hinged for easy removal of minnows after they are caught also contribute to the ease of use. Lastly, you want a trap that is easy for the minnows you plan to trap, too. Look for a model with large enough entry doors/holes that baitfish find it simple to get in.
