i've searched the fourum on this topic and there isnt much on this topic so we need to change that. i looked around at traps rangeing from $3.68 to 15.95 and didnt see much diference in them so i got the one from wallyworld to try out. the main diferece i see is the opening, the one i got is only 2 inches wide the other was the width of the trap. i took it out to the old wooden bridge that crosses catfish creek and baited it with some beef liver i had cut up in 2" squares for catfish bait (abot 6 pieces) and lowered it off the bridge next to some concrete and rip rap in about a foot of water. left it overnite and the bait was gone and the trap was empty. should i put the trap so its out of the water so fish cant get in? should i make a one way door so what goes in doesnt go out? i live in a rual area and bait stores are rare and in the opposit direction from where i live and would like to start catching my own bait. any tips would be appriciated.
