It can't be less effective than my 5 litre water bottle based efforts! You might want to make it darker in there though, Terry Bullard explains why at http://www.terrybullard.com/crayfish_products.html

"Tunnel view - made of black net. This one of the main secrets why these traps out perform ALL others many times over. Crayfish and Shrimp are at the bottom of the food chain, Everything is out to eat them! Plain wire entries become transparent when in the water and crayfish are very exposed to all predators, or so it will seem, when they enter other types of traps. Only starving crayfish will enter other types of tunnels and the rest will pass the traps by for a safer meal. The black netting supplies them with concealment from predators as they make their way to the bait. Also, the mesh size, texture, and bounce, of netting does not give them sense of encountering an object that cannot be entered where painted wire or plastic will!"

Anybody know if crayfish come out at this time of year or are they all hibernating?

Dunno, but you should look into the legality of it before setting your trap.
