Legal Eel Trap?


Recommended Posts

Hi, does anyone know where I can buy (or find plans to make) a trap for freshwater eels that is legal to use in public waters? Ie, won't trap and kill platypus/turtles, but will still reasonably catch eels? You might think I'm crazy, but I love a feed of eel every now and then!

My Dad used to love catching Golden Eels and smoking them. He just used a hand line and garden worms, fished the creeks in the National Park and golf course dams. Caught enough to keep him happy.

As to traps I think you would be in trouble if caught with one.
