Fish Traps – Pinfish Traps, Perch/Bream Fish Trap


Our Fish Traps here at Catch N Bait Supply Company, are the finest bait fish traps made in America.
We are very proud of the success that
our pinfish/live bait fish traps offer all of our customers. Our goal was to
eliminate wasted time on the water catching live bait so you, the fisherman,
could spend that same precious time on your favorite fishing hole catching
trophy fish instead. Tournament fishermen understand that time is of the
essence and know that saving an hour or even just one minute could mean all
the difference between winning or losing! With that in mind, we have
exceeded our goal and have created a fisherman’s dream.

For those fishermen interested in trapping live bait fish such as pinfish, spot,
mutton minnows, squirrel fish, sea bass, porgies, bluegill, perch and more..
without chumming, throwing cast nets and making your boat a mess, then here’s
your answer! Our Live Bait Fish Traps are not your typical cheap pinfish
traps that rust away or compare to those bait fish traps that are just not
designed properly to trap enough live bait. Our live pinfish/bait fish traps
were designed to trap the maximum amount of bait fish within the shortest
amount of time.

All of our pinfish/live bait fish traps are made of a very lightweight,
welded, wire which is dipped in a black PVC coating for added
saltwater protection. Catch N Bait live bait fish traps are built with all
stainless steel clamp construction for many, many years of use to come.

We have 8 outstanding Live Bait Fish Traps below to choose from,
starting with the smallest live bait fish trap first. (For more bait fish

** “Exit Wall” Bait Fish Trap Feature
We are the originator of this fish trap design and also the only company that make
these styles of bait fish traps. The “Exit Wall” was added to our 4 most
popular live bait fish traps with the intent to help confuse the live bait fish by
not letting them see a direct opening to the fish trap exit. On our 4 exit wall models, we have made the inside wire bait container much larger, making the bait container itself acting as its own exit wall. We’ve made the exit wall
in such a way that the bait fish would have to pass between the exit wall/bait container and the
exit then make a sharp left or right turn fitting through the opening. The
opening can only be seen by the bait fish at the very last second making it
very difficult to figure out how to exit the bait fish traps. We recommend
this design especially for those fisherman that have intentions on leaving
their live bait fish traps out for more than 24 hours. This exit wall will
help contain most of your live bait fish from escaping as your food becomes
eaten inside all of your bait fish traps. The larger wire bait container is great for adding larger amounts of food for many days of live bait fish trapping. As many as 3 or 4 cut mullet and other bait can be dropped into the bait container because of its unique and larger size. The Exit Wall feature is an excellent bait fish trap design and
highly recommended even for short-term trapping.

I’m the guy who got 3 traps Wednesday and some bait formula. You were right, worked like a charm, in 1 day caught enough pinfish for 2 great days in gulf. I’ll be in touch prior to my next trip down, need another bucket of the bait formula and a holding pen. What a difference your traps made!

Thanks, Dick D.-Hernando Beach, Fl



I was so impressed with the quality of the other items I bought I couldn’t resist and buying again. You haven’t heard the last of me yet. I will be back again. I think some items I can resale here to fishermen. I appreciate the quality of your products. Thanks. I will pay with Paypal.

—————————————- name is John Miller and I spoke to you earlier this week regarding the appropriate size pinfish trap for my needs. I purchased your new 1817EWH Model with the two trap compartments. I received the trap yesterday and set it out today around 1:00 pm. I used about a half dozen cut sardines and a couple of old squid pieces for bait. I checked the trap tonight around 6:30. All I can say is WOW!!!!
Pinfish have been very hard to come by in our area because of the cold water (55 degrees) and almost everyone I know is whining about no live bait for deep offshore grouper fishing. In the last several weeks I have spent many many hours sabiking up bait nearshore for not much return. I tried your trap in my new SECRET spot 🙂 (right next to my moored boat in about 4′ of water on a mud bottom) and the result was between 100-200 lively pins!!! Just think what it might do on good bottom!!..and I would estimate that 3/4s of them were in the second compartment…just as you said.
Now the truth is I don’t know if it’s your great trap design or just plain luck, or my secret spot….but nevertheless I”M HAPPY.
On a less emotional note, I really liked the design when it arrived. It was well built and cleverly designed. Once you see it, you kind of say “of course!!”..that’s the way it should be…double coverage!!
Thanks again for steering me to your new design.

PS..if you’d like some followup reports let me know.


Just wanted to let you know that I was not very excited about the 1122 trap that I purchased, looking at it and comparing it to the one that I had made, I thought that my trap would out catch it. After one wk. in Marathon,using both your trap and mine, placing them side by side, I am a believer, your trap out catches mine 5 to 1. Thanks for talking me into keeping it and I will let everyone that asks know what a great trap it is.
