Default bait for the traps

i have just kinda of gotten into the trapping aspect of hunting, and i have cought coon, cats, and opposms, but i was woundering what the best bait would be to catch more of them, or even more types of varmits. i was also wounder what i could use to call in yotes, and even bait, but here in WI you can't use meat.... any thoughts

Default RE: bait for the traps

i would maybe try scents out instead of bait. I trap beavers and otters all spring and i use beaver castor gland scent for the beavers and fresh fish oil for the otters. These really seem to do the job. I would shop around for some scents maybe bobcat urine or something along that line.

Now is a great time to make yourself some fishoil. Catch a few bullheads,carp, whatever and chop up into chunks. Put into large mason jar, cover opening with 3-4 layers of cheesecloth(to keep the flies out) and set in sun where dogs and cats cant get into it for a couple months. When it has rendered down pour the oil off it into squeeze bottle or such and presto, you have lure that works great on coon,possum,mink,and canines.
