This Danielson Crab Snare is lightweight and durable, making it the right tool for the job. It has enough space to both attract and retain many different sizes of crustaceans although it is very compact. This solid steel, wire bait cage is coated with vinyl, making it easier to handle and giving it a lower in-water profile. The trap easily attaches to almost any fishing rod. This bait cage has a bottom opening door for easy access and seven monofilament nylon snares to hold the crab in place.
