I'm not a lobster man, but I've seen how a lobster trap is supposed to work. Maybe YouTuber Ian Black made it easy for the lobsters to escape for the purpose of this video, but why wouldn't you want to catch all these delicious crustaceans and have an amazing dinner?

In this video we can see the lobsters going for the bait in the trap. The lobsters never get completely in though and they are able to escape with ease..
