When it says to "write" on them, what it means is that you push hard enough to emboss it into the tag. So you should probably use a pen. But yea, like they said, those tags are junk. After a catch or 2 they get ripped off.

Re: zinc trap tags

Re: zinc trap tags

Order from Finch tonight, you'll have them by Wednesday if not sooner. Much, much better than the write-on tags.

I agree......I usually get them in 2 or 3 days.....

Re: zinc trap tags

Tried a few in a pinch this year. Lasted 1 maybe 2 catches and they were destroyed. Do not get them. copper or bronze stamped what I would suggest.
