Can you catch crawfish in a minnow trap?
The minnow trap works equally well in calm water or good flowing current. If baited properly, the traps can also be used to catch crawfish, small bream, mud minnows or even baby catfish. When using the trap in still water, place the bait inside the trap and allow it to attract the minnow in.
