Fish Fish and More Fish.
For alot of the big trappers it's all they use.

For something sweet though any of the thigs above would work by themselves.

I made a lure from cherries.

I made a couple lures that need testing.

One has ground crawdads, molasses, and mullberries.
The other is molasses, cherries, and a little anise. I may add enough ground fish to fill the jar.

The cherries and mullberries were fermented.

I wish I could find enough crawfish to make a bait with some shellfish and fish oil.

I think that would work well.

Yes, shad work very well for coon, especially if your trapping near a lake or stream that has them in it...Tom

where i will be trapping there isnt any shad. there are perch, crappie, bass, and catfish. ive thought about using perch but i can buy shad at a store in town 25 for like 3 bucks and figured that would be easyer than havin to catch fish for bait.

I don't think I'd take that easy route but you can do what you want.Go get a couple of your friends and catch some fish.To me there is a certain satisfaction that comes with catching and putting up my bait the way I want and then using it to catch some fur.

Shad do work good.I've taken shad that were 3 or 4 inches long and mixed them in a bucket with some flake fish food and it worked really well.Not sure if the fish food helped but it sure didn't hurt.

I don't grind mine up.The shad I use whole.I shoot a bunch of carp and catch a bunch of dogfish,gar and whitebass.I gut them and then cut them up in chunks.Last year I froze them all and then me and a buddy chopped them up with a sawsall and a hatchet.Fun times! grin wink

I also have filet them out and cut the filets up in 2" chunks.I only do that with the carp.

If you don't have freezer space or want to run a freezer all summer just for that you can put the fish in a bucket with salt.I've never done this but want to try it so I can shut my big freezer off in the summer.You put a layer of salt in the bottom of the bucket,then fish,then salt,alternating until the bucket is full.End with salt.Get the softener salt or livestock salt that is granular type stuff,not the pellets.

I plan to grind some this year but I only have a small hand grinder.I don't know how big of bones they will cut up so it will take some experimenting on my part I guess.Good luck with your bait making.

Shad makes for very good bait. Very oily !

Ground fish will dry out far faster then chunks. I prefer to freeze fish whole and then cut them for bait just prior to the season. Often only a couple nights before. They are easier to handle when they are still partially frozen. I most often use a folding limbing saw.

A chunk just a little bigger then a golfball is all I use. A little Anise Oil in my bait bucket is all I add to spike it just a little.

Usually several of us MN guys will buy a volume of bait and split it several ways.

Anything less than about 1 pound can be ground whole in my small hand crank grinder. Anything over that is hard to get through the head and backbone.

I do both, grind and Chunk. For the smaller fish I leave them whole and use a hand axe on the line as needed. The ones I grind, I add molases to it. It sticks well and has a good odor. Tom
