I’ve seen pumpkins turned into scarecrows, the traditional porch decor and of course, the carved jack-o-lantern, but now you can apparently use them to catch fish. After a few years spent on Youtube, Facebook and Pinterest, I have to say some of the creative uses people come up with for things still surprise me! Maybe I can use a Christmas tree to go fishing come winter?
I plan to take one to the lake this weekend to test it out. Watch the Youtube video to see how you can make your own pumpkin trap, too.
Lately, I’ve been buying pumpkins to decorate for fall and have been inspired by all of the wonderful pumpkin decorating ideas I found on Youtube. Then I came across this DIY made with a pumpkin and it stopped my decorating altogether. If you love fishing like I do, you will see why. Apparently, you can make a fish trap with a pumpkin and a plastic bottles, plus a few nails. My fishing rod may just not get used this weekend. I simply have to try this one out, if only to say I did. What better way to spend a fall afternoon than at the lake, anyway.
Hoping to catch some fish as they do in this video, it certainly looks doable. I often get in way over my head on projects I think I can make, but this DIY fish trap is super simple. Who would ever have thought of using a pumpkin to catch fish, definitely not me. Their shape and size are perfect for it, now that I think about it. See what you think for yourself with this Youtube video that shows you step by step instructions for making your own pumpkin fish trap.
