Trapping end

I was wondering when most guys pull in most of their traps for the year? On fox and coon sets what are you guys using most?

I move most of mine when everything freezes up. You can contnue to trap water though. Find the running water at the bottom of a beaver dam, the the water cotinues to run till it get's very cold. You can also find the beaver runs around the beaver house. BE VERY CAREFUL around a beaver house, the ice may only be a skim from all the traffic under the ice. Inside a muskrat house is always a good set. on land you can use buckwheat hulls to stop your traps from freezing down. You may not have to pull all your traps, only find a little different way to keep the elements off your equipment. As far as bait. When bait freezes it does not give off as good of scent as when it is thawed. A good loud lure with skunk esecnce is the ticket. That lure has worked for me on fox coyote, fisher, bobcat. As far as coons watch the weather. If it warms enough they may poke there heads out but mostly when its cold they are holed up. For fox I have had good luck with a straw set and drags. Nail down bait, a good lure and wait. This is just what has worked for me.

Thanks a bunch I pulled my traps. When it got so cold, walking to make the rounds on several traps, the frost bite was starting to hit. Nice learn things that may help next season.

      Mark B!!!  Great to hear one of your reports again. I sure miss them.  Take care and I'm looking forward to hearing about your trip in Sept.

      I know it’s a little ways out but will be my first time going to lake vermilion August 7-10 out of Norwegian bay. Just wondering how the bass fishing is and will be around that time if anyone knows

      Thanks for the information! Are you talking about south walnut by the dam and just north of there where the other river meets the lake? I’d assume it’s more of a spring spot when the waters a little higher and the walleyes are running?

      It's a shallow lake with a channel that runs through it. You will be better off with a canoe or kayak to fish it.   The walleyes tend to congregate where the channel runs close to shore. You can also fish the holes in the blue earth river for them. A few flatties hang there too.

      Whatya got?  If it’s for free it’s for me. 😁
    • Duckhunter1941
      I was wondering if anyone has ever fished walnut or south walnut lake/ the blue earth river area? I see the dnr stocks walleye about every other year but I never hear of anyone fishing it
