    Positive & Negative

    Verified Purchase

    I bought two of these traps to catch the fish in my private pond to transfer them to another area during renovation of the pond. I dropped them in the deep area, and the next day I went out in a row boat to retrieve them. They were packed with fish! Very exciting. Unfortunately, after I emptied the first trap with the hinged door, I pulled up the second trap. The hinged door didn't work. It had been fastened permanently shut with clips at the factory. There was no way to get the fish out. I had to pry open the trap (ruining it) in order to save the fish. I'm sure it was a simple mistake at the factory. Nevertheless, I am out one trap. Other than that, their design is great and they really work!

    By Jeremy on 06/01/2018

    Very pleased with the trap. The adjustable entrance is a great feature. It would be nice if it came with a couple places to hook a rope. Overall great product.

    Model 406

    By Lamar on 11/04/2018

    Catches fish but we use it in Pensacola Bay. It rusted to pieces in 4 months. Should be coated so it can be used In salt water.

Questions & Answers

Have a question about this product?
  
Q
What size catfish will it catch and what do you bait it with
A
The 406 Single Trap Door with Easy Release Door Rigid XL Fish Live Trap will catch catfish up to 5lbs. Over 5lbs they will not fit in the funnel. The trap can hold up to 15 fish at a time. There are different types of bait you can use. I have found that just plain old hot dogs work best.

Q
Is Fish Trap Easy Release Model 406 good for catching and holding nice size mudminnows but big enough to let the smaller ones swim out?

Tomahawk Rigid Single Door XL Fish Trap Easy Release Model 406 would not be good for allowing small mudminnow to swim out.  We have spoken with the manufacturer and they suggested the Tomahawk Perch and Minnow Trap with Adjustable Funnel - Model 424.  This it item is only currently available via phone order for $106.93
