re: Crawfish Trapping Tips
This was a local crawfish supply shop. I’d check with your local ag supply dealer and they should be able to help you out

Academy in Hattiesburg had a few pyramids last spring. I’ve got a few of the square ones I use to get trot line bait.

re: Crawfish Trapping Tips
My buddy catches crawfish in pyramid traps with no bait in them. For the most part he uses artificial bait, the pill looking things.

re: Crawfish Trapping Tips
OP - just food for thought, pyramid traps though excellent, are designed for trapping in shallow water, characteristic of crawfish aquaculture ponds, usually less than a couple feet in depth.

If you plan or need to place the traps in deeper water, you’ll need a pyramid trap with a long neck extension to rise above the water surface or you will have to modify the open top so that it can closed and opened. You’ll also likely need a rod to keep the trap upright. Those features add several dollars to the cost of the trap.

If water depth is an issue where you plan to place the traps you’d be better off with the old fashioned pillow trap used by commercial crawfishermen in the Atchafalaya River Basin or those who trap crawfish in other deeper water habitats.
