    I use to take a piece of aluminum foil and rap it around the trigger of a foot set or jumper trap and place in the shallows of a moving creek. I all so would take a log nail a trap to the end of it and put it in a shallow pond or puddle with the trap in the water, the coon's would walk to the end and search the water for food and get caught. I did use a can of tuna just hooked to the trigger of a 330 conibear but I tried to get away from baiting so not to catch dogs and cats and other unwanted animals.

    yeah its an old set alright,dirt hole sets will do you better in the long run as far as stacking up numbers of coon though
