What works well for bluegill bait in traps?
i use nitecrawler but you will also get other fish too like (catfish,bass. ect.)
In minnow traps I have used bread and it worked great, might try it for bluegill.
I pour a cup of chicken liver in a net sack (onion sack) and hang it from the bait door so it hangs about halfway down. It has been working great for me.
I always used a few pieces of bread with a half an onion cut up,it always worked for me.I now usually use abt a half package of the Ramen noodles,they last a while and work good.
Salmonid had a post not too long ago saying he heard rice crispy treats were a good bait for traps. I think it makes a lot of sense, but have never tried it. It should disolve pretty slowly mixed with the marshmellow. It is at least worth a try.
Dry dog food soaked in bacon grease.
I've had good luck using beef,liver,and bacon flavor dog food.We just put 2or 3 holes in each end.
I have had great luck with dry dog food! I just put some in a baggie and punch holes in it. Place it in the bait holder part of trap!
I have always used old stale bread or stale crackers works pretty good.
I have used cooked hotdogs it tends to stay a while and lets grease go out slowly.
