Handmade Ice Fishing Traps and Tip Ups

Ice Fishing Traps


anglerAt Max-Traps, we pride ourselves in building quality, handmade ice fishing traps. Max-Traps is a small Maine based business that started building ice fishing tip ups 2003 after a local sporting goods store changed hands and decided to do away with outdoor sporting goods.

Max-Traps is a family oriented business and we frequent sportsman shows throughout the northeast, promoting and selling our products.

We not only build this equipment but like you, regularly use it . Every outdoorsman knows the importance of high quality, durable equipment. The features on our ice fishing traps prevent common problems that can quickly ruin a fun filled day of fishing.
