Thanks for the info on the baskets but I still have not gotten on yet.Went to gander mt. and theres didnt look so good and it was bigger than what I think I would need.So instead I got more traps,lures and steaks.cant wait to set them.Any advice on how to rust them up a little faster.I think my son will go nuts watching them.He is having a great time with this stuff and gets up everyday with me to run the line.We started out with 2 traps we got from a buddy and we now have 15 out.Cant stop buying stuff and he wants traps for christmas.Hows that for the dreaded christmas shopping cant beat going to sport shops.Thanks for the tips keep them coming so we can catch something a little more exciting than rats![not that I dont luv to see a rat on the bottom] Thanks guys Donnie and Ty :D

If you want your traps "rusted" overnight, place them in the kitchen sink with hot water and regular dish soap and wash them down. Once done washing give your wife 50 bucks and tell her to leave for 2 hours. When she is gone, place the traps in the dishwasher (make sure there are no trap chains hanging down where the agitator is ) and place on pots and pans cycle. USE NO SOAP in dishwasher. Leave them in there until complete cycle is done. Your traps will now come out with a thin coat of rust. :wink:
