    Hi...


    I'll mostly use skinned animal carcasses for my bait. Then I'll supplement that with lure and urine purchased from professional lure makers. For carnivores only, of course.


    It might be 'fun' to make one's own lures, but it takes time and experience...and a LOT of experimentation.


    The bulk of my water sets are blind sets, and no lure is used there, (generally), although some lure might be used for some mink and otter sets.

    Did you freeze them or just them in a jar or what? Were they rotting fish?

    When I trapped I always used the fish on a stick technique for coons. I could always catch plenty of small bluegill during the spring and summer to have enough bait in the fall.

    For you trappers out there. Do you make your own baits or lures? If so what animal is it for and how do you make it or harvest it from the animal? Please and thank you.
