Finicky Fish Factory Box Trap
« on: Dec 13, 2010, 07:29 PM »
Does anyone have any of these?  They are a box trap that has a small heater in them (ultra pure lamp oil) and the hole never freezes and keeps the 4  D batteries warm.  This unit jigs for 30 seconds and then shuts off for 30 seconds etc or you can have it jig consistantly.  I have a few of these from Craigslist and they are amazing.  Sometimes we fish places where dead bait is required and they out perform a regular trap by far.  Even with live bait they will out perform the other traps.  They are quick to set up and simply do their thing.  They are hard to find, as the man who made them stopped, but some guy in Wisconsin still has some who knows this guy.  They are expensive new around $90.00, but you can used as I did online.  People always come up to you and ask about them and want to look at them.  The reviews are mostly positive.  I just was wondering if anyone else owned these.  They are a lot of fun.

My dad has one of these and its pretty awesome.  He likes it because he doesn't need to get too far away from the cooler as often because you don't have to tend it that much  ;D

google them online with the word craigslist in it and one name should pop up.  I will take a look and get the guys number.  You won't be disappointed.  They are really amazing and work very well.  Minus 20 up to Moosehead and he holes never freeze.  My friend brings a cordless drill with a nut driver on it and winds up his line quickly with his drill. There is a nut on top of the T on the top of the trap which holds the spool inside. We disconnect the wire on the light to save batteries.  Four D batteries will get us through the season.  I have a set of 5 now and they are awesome.  Sometimes with the kids we get sick of the flags and just put a hook down the hole with no bait, as they are happy to snowmobile, play etc.

The guy is from Appleton Wisconsin, but the posting from Craigslist was deleted on Nov 20, 2010.  There was still some out there from the man that invented them earlier this year.

I've got one, a good friend gave it to me when he passed away.  I'll be using it this year.  Didn't have it in time to use it last year.  Its a real cool rig.

Try Maverick Manufacturing at 920-446-2703.  I think it may be some guy named J Sorcic.  They may have some or know the guy you could buy them from.  I remember speaking to them and they had some left last year.  You will really enjoy them.
