Saturday night I set the trap in Bays Mtn. Lake. Sunday morning I had 5
small bluegills. Monday night I set it in Possum Creek and didn't get
anything after about 4 hrs. One problem I am having is that the air line
that holds everything together is a little too flexible. I have to be very
careful when retrieving the trap to hold the pan on the bottom. Otherwise,
everything just swims out the gap.
