Mine has arrived, and I've spliced a
15m length of 5mm 4ply poly propylene gearbox killer that cost me 99p on to the wire frame. Picture below (tape shows inches). Entrance is small the little ball shown is the same size as the entrances.

Dunno. The entrance is too small to get eddible lobys I think.

Its basically made of fishing net fabric.

The entrances are held into the trap (hard to climb back up as like an overhang) by fishing line. I've replaced that with cotton thread so if its lost the cotton will fail and then escape should be possible. I've also tensioned it more.

Small zip leads to a pocket for bait. Big zip let's you retrieve catch.

Will need some weights added.

What should I bait with for random Catch (pref not eels!) - not looking for big eddibles as won't get in the hole...

We usually use a bit of Mackerel for bait. I was told (no idea if it's true) fresh for crabs and not fresh for lobster.

Fillet it off the bone, so you finish up with long fillets, depending on the size of the fish they look like white pork tenderloin. Slice into medallions about 3/4" thick, egg & breadcrumb, fry in butter. Salt, pepper, lemon, crusty bread & butter, bottle of Normandy cidre👍. It's like eating a very tender fillet steak. Halibut is the closest resemblance I could think of.
