    Have any chicken mesh? Cut a rectangle and make it into a cylinder. Make a cone and push it in backwards. Make a small door on the back and either cable ties or thin wire to hold it together. Chuck some meat into a sock and face it down current so when thet swim up they go right in.

    How I've always made it

    We used to fish for them on a pole with about 5 foot of line and some cat food ( Jelly Meat was the best brand ) inside a piece of pantyhose .
    Their teeth get caught in the stocking and you just haul them out of the water .
    I spent a lot of time as a youngster doing that .
    Good memories
