You MUST tell us what it is when you get it. I hope it doesn't end up being an empty coke bottle or some such.

You commonly pay way more than five dollars for an idea. We pay rights in a lot of thee things that we do and an inventor has the right to charge for their ideas.

I agree with new fish, making his feedback private makes it suspect.

I think that it probably is a good idea, but when you have a good idea you should patent it and keep others from cashing in as much as possible. I can't believe he is making much money by selling and shipping all the materials for $5.00. Market and sell it main stream, you would sell a lot more and protect your idea.

It is only going to take a few people to purchase this and it will be on this forum. Then he will get no credit or he won't sell anything because nobody is curious.

It probably is a coke bottle with bridal veil and a shrimp anyway.

I say we keep guessing on what it is. And whoever is closest gets kudos from us...

It has to be something that we all have in our kitchen or garage, etc. that he put together.

plastic bottle, top half cut off, top then inverted with hole just large enough for fish to swim thru...

bait inside...

voila... fish caught

same concept as a bee trap
this is a guess... I really dont know what it is... but there was something in the freshies pages about it...

I emailed the guy that bought the last one (Before Nate bought it) and he said he just bought it and will email me what it is when he gets it.

Well he emailed me back.

Said "It has not worked yet" and "He cant tell me because the seller asked not to tell anyone about it"

I emailed back told him unless he agreed to something it would be OK to tell me, havent gotten a reply back yet, but again... He said it hasnt worked.

Dr. Nate, have you gotten yours yet?

I think it is just an idea. Like where they will send you a book on how you can make all the money, but you spend more on the book than you could ever make.

I would not buy it.

There might be some issues posting it here if it's copywrited at all.
