    The Frabill® Black Minnow Trap was what I expected. I use it in salt water to catch killies for bait. It works as advertised and I caught killies for my fluke fishing. There were only two problems. One being that the two halves don't always align when closing so bait can escape and the other is that in salt water there is some slight rusting (but this would happen with most any brand). I feel the price was good and I got a good value. [...]

    I dropped this trap into a school of minnows. I literally watched the minnows swim in and out of the holes all around the sides. Needs to be a tighter mesh material. I am going to try covering it with some screen material or maybe a pair of pantyhose to help keep the minnows in. In the mean time I am going to buy a net to scoop them up.

      Comments about Frabill Black Minnow Trap, Torpedo:

      The trap because of it's coating made it easier to handle. Was able to flex without breaking and cleanup was easy due to the coating. We bought 6 and all were great, no problems with either one. I have yet to find any issue with either one so it's +s all the way for the item.
