Survival Fish Trap

Fish traps are a great source of Food, Animal Fat, and Bones during the early and midgame. After placing bait into the trap's inventory, either small fish or trout will be caught, depending on the total calorie value of the bait in the trap. Multiple pieces of bait can be consumed at once if it means catching larger fish. Fish traps lose 10 durability whenever they catch a fish.

Survival Fish Trap This is a great item to use when you cant find animals and are based by the ocean Best way to use the fish trap is by First: Making the fish traps, 6-20 is good depending on the group size. Second: Placing them down in a column 3-10 in a row, 2 rows. Third: Build around them, best thing to do is build according to what you need, build where you can place TC, BBQ,Campfire, storage's and etc. Fourth: once you complete your base, fill the traps with food. Fifth: Once you get a decent amount of fish, gut and cook, and use the cooked fish to bait more small trout. Besure to repair your traps every so often so they don't break, and the self sustaining fish base is the best cause you never run out of food to use and since you're by the water, you can use a campfire with water purifier to have a unlimited amount of fresh water and cooked food, granted you have enough wood to do cook them though! Hope this tip helped! My buddy Stona taught me how to correctly build fish farm bases.

Fish seem to prefer specific baits over others, If there is pickles and cooked fish in the trap as bait, the cooked fish will always be consumed first.

You can place these on foundations just a bit lower than the water level, to have massive fish farms.

Fill fish traps with 1 wood or something blocking fish in each slot, one slot will contain food, and the last slot will contain one trout, so that if a fish comes, it's only trout, there will be no space for minnows. :)
