I have used everything for bait that should work! 2 full months of trappin with 6 live traps I caught 2 coons!
yeah J, sure sounds like the location of the traps aint to good. :) Your bait sounds good. Might try to smear bacon grease somewhere around the trap where it will stay dry and last a long time. That grease will consistently smell for a long time if kept dry and out of the weather. (under tree bark etc).

Then throw the bait you been using in the trap. My favorite is sardines with marshmallows for dessert.

I am trappin around a large minnow farm. Bar ditchs & drains. Normaly I catch coons easy n these spots! Ther just ain't any coons in the spots I can trap
wow! Sounds like you are just crap out of luck and them coons got smart on you Ha! Send me a message where you live. We are also catching some caged coon for a couple young dogs. If you like we can work something out if you live close enough. I say that now then watch us not catch now.

All you need to do is get about 2 pieces of bread break it up and throw it in the back of your trap and if you have any coons you will catch him.I always set mine around a creek or around some logs thats go all the way across a creek,coons use the logs to cross back and forth on.If you can find any logs that cross a creek theres probably coon droppings all over them to thats the kind of place you want to set your trap around.Hope that helps you.
