There's a short part of the video where he seems to be baiting it with something. Small bits in the hole as well as through the tube.

It's easy to see how the video would show catching a lot more fish than can really be caught this way. Gee, how could that be done?

The crabs bother me. It just doesn't look like a place where you get crabs. I could be wrong. And the fish: nice big ones!

This is where you're guaranteed to
get giant crabs..

If you take a risk, you may lose. If you never take a risk, you will always lose.

Hah, I didn't really think about it being hype. But I suppose it could be. I just thought it was some Southeast Asia style of fish trapping.

It seemed no odder than much else on YT. A lot less, actually.

Fish coming out of water for bait seemed no more unusual than non-aquatic animals who fish, sticking their head in the water. I even reasoned the ridges inside bamboo are what help the fish get stuck, whereas a smooth tube might not work.

I pretty much thought crabs are about everywhere there is water

EDIT == also, I noticed what I thought might be a useful feature of that trap, is he covered it with branches and leaves. Fish think they're safe entering a shady covered area. Of course, it could be to hide from other people.

I am willing to bet the fish trap works pretty good, but that the results were exaggerated with some additions off-camera .

crabs are definitely saltwater only. Brackish probably is OK I am going to 'sort-of' defend that statement in that if you run into such a thing, be surprised. Looked it up, I was wrong to think there were no exceptions. Come to think of it there are land crabs too, hermit crabs etc, but do they need to breed in water? almost for sure I think.
