    We have two of these, both somewhat smaller. Not really a trap but can be used as one. We keep minnows to use as bait in them. You leave the entire thing in the water with bread or other food attached to the wire to entice the minnows. When the minnows go in you raise both ends to trap them in the middle, then dump them in a bucket of water. The entire thing should collapse together so it is easy to carry. Vintage is quite possible but you can still buy them new. They also work great for smelt fishing if you happen to live where smelt run in the spring.
