Jolly Good Trap is now direct-to-customer sales only. Volatile price fluctuations in the materiel market and supply chain issues have forced our hand. We appreciate our former vendors and the support our customers gave them.  

Our traps and accessories can be ordered direct from us via email or purchased at the various boat and trade shows we frequent.  


The Tale of JOLLY GOOD TRAP

A passionate sport fisherman tried many types of traps over the years and couldn’t find a prawn or crab trap to meet his needs, so he set out to design the ultimate trap.


The Criteria;
~A SINGULAR trap that would fish prawns OR crabs with equal success. No more single species traps.
~Easily collapsible for storage and just as easily expand to full size.
~Only the highest quality materials.


The Results:
TWO TRAPS IN ONE*!  

*A marine quality, space saving, collapsible, stainless frame trap that fishes CRAB or PRAWNS with a change in rope length**. 

All our traps feature the innovative, patented entry design that frustrates escapes.  

**Generally 100’ for crab to approximately 300’+ for prawns. 


JOLLY GOOD TRAPs are available in two designs.

1) The Original Collapsible 
       Small - ideal for kayaks, sail boats & small                      tender.
       Large - our most popular size.


2) Pyramid Pot

       A stackable pot that fishes both crabs or prawns.
