A fish trap made out of some netting and metal wire for the structure. Once a fish gets in from the funnel opening, it's very unlikely it finds its way out. — In-game description

The Fish Net Trap is a type of equipment in DayZ Standalone.


This trap can be placed into any body of water using the corresponding action when the item is in your hands. You then have to place some bait in the form of Earthworm in it to lure fish into the trap. After quite some time you will find either Mackerel in salt water or Carp in fresh water. It will take anywhere from 15-30 minutes before you trap will be triggered, though you have an estimated 25 % chance of not recieving anything at all. Each time you use your trap its condition will be reduced by one step (e.g from pristine to worn) meaning you can recieve a maximum of 4 fish per trap.
