    Re: Pre-weighed Crab snare lead mold

    Sure. I think a flatish coin weight
    Will work well for that. Lots of ideas.
    Or maybe a flat lead plate that slips in and out nicely. Getting my mad DIY scientist fix on. Cool thanks for the idea.

    If you are trying to avoid the dangling weight just put the weight inside the cage with the bait.

    Re: Pre-weighed Crab snare lead mold

    Just looked at that Crab snare on
    CL. I've bought similar snares like that with the large 16 guage hardware cloth 1" x 1/2" rectangle
    And went through the bait fast.
    This year I'm making the same snare
    But building an secondary inside cage out of 1/4" square very thin pliable hardware cloth. I have a few also has a second internal hatch door. I've made a few proto-type that I haven't triaged yet. And too tell you the truth I think they're gonna work so much better. They are definitely a huge labor of love. I've had a few good ideas on how to weight them from other people. I think I'll just continue with the Duo-Cross lock and 5oz. Pyramid sinker at the opposite side of mainline. Im trying to eliminate the dangly pyramid that could interfere with loops. I'm just picky no big deal really. Happy snaring everyone. ;-)
    I'm just copying a snare desighn I saw in the pro-shop

    You can change things up if you carry the right tools too, do so when you are out. I always carry extra tools in any of my gear that I take along......Jetspray

    Re: Pre-weighed Crab snare lead mold

    Yes I think your rite JetSpray. Little
    Research enginuety trial n error I should be able too come up with
    Something very efficient. I bought a snare that had large 1inch x 1/2 inch rectangle
    16 guage hardware cloth. It had an
    Inner cage made of 1/4 inch square
    Very pliable wire mesh. Great snare
    Not going too feed the crabs too much bait savor. She lost it in the rocks last year couldn't find another
    One like it. So I'm starting my proto-type. YouTube has good vids
    For diy outer cage directions. On your own inner cage. I put my first one together yesterday and it turned out super nice very happy with it. Took it apart and recreated muliple patterns for both inner and outer cages and cut out hardware cloth to size and shape stringing them up comes last
    Anyways blah blah. I think I'll just stick a coin weight in the cage and bait on top for now.
    Be well.. SA.

    Why not two coin weights? Drill a center hole . Put one in and one out. Use a nut and bolt to clamp them together on the mesh.

    Doing the best I can with what's left.
