How would you make a glass minnow trap?

Making a glass minnow trap can be fun and it isn’t difficult. You will need a glass jar and a glass cutter. You also need a glass bottle that you can turn upside down into the jar as your funnel. You will need to use the glass cutter to cut the bottle so it is a perfect fit. Next, take some copper wire and cut three different pieces. They can all be various lengths. Put that wire around the mouth of the jar. You want to take one piece and thread it through the neck of the bottle. Now you are ready to insert your bait into the glass minnow trap when you go fishing. It is a good idea to have an extra minnow trap in case the first one you make gets broken while you are out fishing. If you have children, they will enjoy the process of catching the minnows as much as the actual fishing.
