If it is a little Grizz, I put mini marshmellows on the bottom under the trigger then a big one on top in the opening. Then I put some lure in the bottom and top.

If you take a pink or green rubber jig body for fishing and slide it over the trigger then put some fish oil on it. they will grab the jig and pull up on the trigger. I tryed a couple of things that didn't work well before being told about this and its worked well for me. Kyle
