In this video, I will teach how to make a fishing trap that let’s you fish and catch multiple fish, rather than just a few.
Edit: I kept calling this the shear lashing. It’s actually called the round lashing. They are so similar – To Frap or Not To Frap (lol) 😀
No fishing pole is needed.
Following items can help your chances:
*Monofilament or Braided Fishing Line
*Inside strands of Paracord
*Bankline (#36 or smaller)
*Barbed fishing hooks or barbed treble hooks
*Lead Weights (lead bullet weights or lead splitshot weights)
*Weighted Bobbers or Pencil Bobbers
*Bait: Worms (live or artificial), slugs, frogs, minnows, bread (the soft inside rolled into a small 3/8″ or 1/2″ inch ball), cut bait (small fish such as bream or crappie cut into small chunks), chicken livers, salamanders, salmon eggs, bream bites, corn… Any of these will work
*A hammer, hatchet, axe or rock to hammer in wood stake (a wood stake about 3 – 4 foot long will be need to drive into ground per trap) into ground to lash a sapling to
*a live, fresh cut sapling (baby tree) about 7 – 14 foot tall per trap
*Knots – know how to tie: the square knot, the clove hitch, two half hitches, the taught line hitch, the polamar knot, clinch knot or improved clinch knot
*Lashings – know how to tie: the round lashing
*A pocket knife (one with a saw would be really helpful such as a Leatherman Surge or a Swiss Army Camper)
*Always take down your traps after you’re done and follow all local laws regarding fishing and trapping!
