A buddy of mine from Arkie is trying to sell me a wooden catfish trap. I have no idea how illegal this is to use in Texas. It looks a whole lot like this.

Not sure of the legality of your question... but I knew a guy that would catch cats in the river, then use a catfish trap (wooden/chicken wire box) to purge the fish in a clear stream.

I have always been told it is illegal. We would have to be careful with perch traps because channel cats would get caught in them sometimes. You have to throw them back regardless of the size.

Catfish is classified as a game fish = no trapping.
