Promar Minnow, Crawfish & Bait Trap

Every day I bring you an item on Amazon that I personally use or has been purchased by many members of the audience and I have researched enough to recommend.

Today’s TSP Amazon Item of the day is the Promar Minnow, Crawfish & Bait Trap.  I have been putting together what I think is the ultimate compact go anywhere behind the truck seat fishing kit this year and this is my latest addition.

As before when I covered my favorite compact cast net, please check what is an isn’t legal in your area.  This all boils down to one thing for me, and that is bait.  Buying bait is expensive but with the laws in Texas with one of these and a cast net I seldom have to buy bait.

This trap has some features I was really looking for.  First is it is very well built with high quality netting.  Many such collapsible traps are made with very weak netting that seldom lasts even half a season.

I also wanted a “bait pocket” so that bait would be contained and easy to remove when done using to prevent stink.  This trap has a zippered integrated bait pocket that is perfectly designed.  I also wanted a large zippered opening to allow easy removal of bait, as you can see in the video this one has that covered.

As a collapsible trap I wanted it to fit when collapsed into my kit bag and more over to stay fricken closed.  This trap has stout clips that allow it do to do just that.

So if you want a go anywhere high quality portable bait trap check out the Promar Minnow, Crawfish & Bait Trap today and see the video below for a more in depth review of this products features.

Remember you can always find the TSP Amazon Item of the day by just going to and by shopping at anytime you shop on Amazon you help support TSP and the work we do here no matter what you buy.

P.S. – Again PLEASE check what your local laws are and if you are in doubt in any way please call your local fish and game office, they will be happy to clear up any confusion.

  1. Looks like a cool device, first time I have ever heard about it. Just wondering though, if s fish swims in and has time on his side, like several hours, then surely he will figure out where the exit door is, or he may even find his way out by random persistence ?

    • I have one similar to this and don’t thing I ever lost a fish that went in. Also, I have used mine to keep minnows alive while fishing. So, I’m not going to say that you’ll never lose a minnow that has gotten trapped, but don’t let that possibility stop you from getting one of these. They’re a “must have” in my opinion. for anyone that wants to keep minnow expense to a minimum.

  2. Thanks Jim, I have come to the conclusion now that fish a low IQ

  3. Would really love to have one of these but the rabbit sheriff in Tennessee (good one Jack) says the opening has to be 1.5″ or less.
