Does anybody know what a "fishtrap" is? I keep hearing this is a great rockfish lure (for the coast) but have never seen/ used one. What do they look like and where can I buy/ see one of these lures?

THanks.

It's just a swimbait and you rig them with a lead head:

Most tackle stores sell them in a variety of colors. They are also used for Stripers and Largemouth Bass.

It's also a deadly casting lure for (surf or freshwater) stripers and an occasional hungry surface-medium depth crusing halibut.

Ive never really used those before either, so I was wondering what colors would u guys recommend for different species? Also what weight leadheads?
