    take a plastic 50gal drum cut it in half drill alot of holes in the bottom of the drum so it can hold water fill with cut fish or livers cut a 2x6 four foot in length and attach to drum with rope or decking screws find some shallow murky water make sure that at least 1/4 of the barrel is above the water where you set it. GOOD LUCK.....DOES IT WORK...YES as we all know in the shallows turtles crawl onto logs and rocks to sit in the sun when they climb the board they will see and smell the cutfish and will see water crawl in and cant get back out just collect them out:wink:
