Thank you for your reply! I am building a wire turtle trap right now. I will be working on the entrance in a few days.
But you got me thinking. I will be trapping shallow ponds. The ponds will have a lot of weeds and duck weed etc. Most of the hoop are hi maintenance from what I have read and seen. I may try the netting to start if it becomes a problem, I can always switch to wire.
I anyone else using netting throats and wire bodies?

Thank you in advance! Getting There

Good to hear from you my friend. You make posts about wanting to trap red ear slider turtles with your nets. Here are some pictures of sliders and cooters caught with wire traps on a turtle removal job last summer.

Yes. The trap design that Eric space uses to catch thousands of pounds of snapping turtles have wire bodies with net throats. Thatís proof enough that they work if you ask me. Iíll see if I can find pictures of his traps this weekend


I also build them as wire bodies with webbing throat at times. Turtles are not difficult to catch and hold. Theyíre not like fish where the design of the trap is critical imo

Thanks Aix:
As the old saying goes" A picture is worth a 1000 words. I am working on building a trap right now. Still cold out today, 24 degree. Working in a un-heated garage.
Thanks for the pictures!

These are pictures that Eric has shared on Trapperman. I really like them, and I appreciate their value if someone were able to legally set turtle traps below the waterline

I buy it from crab trap wire suppliers down here. If youíre looking for Aquamesh by brand name, itís not as easy to get as it once was, because some suppliers chose to switch to imported wire instead. Most people want cheap, they donít care where it came from.

A person could just as easily make these traps with standard cage wire. In freshwater environments, galvanized wire will last quite a while.
