Sounds like an advertisement. You got a dog in that hunt?

BH45, Pick out a few different flavors and see what works. There is no such thing as the best in this game.

Best bait is make a set right on several different sets of coon tracks. They ain't picky eaters. If they are hungry (they don't get all that fat from light eating) they will eat anything you will and lots of stuff you won't. Use something with a lot of odor. Make it easy to find and smell and you'll catch coons.

yep and a few blind trail sets on either side will increase your catch also. Take all the advantages you legally can to fill your stretchers. Tom

Coons aren't too picky. I've got a mama and three half grown kits that I'm feeding every night. I have put everything that we have as leftovers out there, dry catfood, rotting bananas, and even cornbread and crackers! Thye've cleaned it all up every night!!!

I completely agree. What works for someone in the north may not be as good for us south boys. Gotta try different stuff. Find what's best for you!

As others have pointed out there really is no best bait. There are several good baits on the market and multiple homemade concoctions that will catch you coon.

That being said I do have some favorites that I recommend:

- Coon Crunch by Keg Creek: Marty Smith, owner of Keg Creek Lures, makes good products and goes by braveheart on here. As mjh pointed out it is a great bait that works excellent in a DP. Quick and very easy to use with no mess.

- Shellfish Bait by Mike Marsyada: Great all around bait.

- Temptation by Trapper Art of Wisconsin: I ended up getting a jar of this stuff thrown in on a trapshed deal I made one fall. Gave it a shot and it was the best bait I used that season.

- Chunk of fish: I have caught plenty of coon using nothing but a chunk of fish, just as many, many others around the country have. One can only imagine the mountains of coon that have fallen to nothing more than a piece of carp or bullhead shoved in the back of a pocket set.

- Caught plenty of coon on straight shellfish oil too.

I have caught coon on several baits, these are just a few that I recommend because they have worked well for me. That is not to say that you won't have luck on some other bait.

I don't do it often but if you (BuckHunter45) send me a PM with your name and address I'll send you a free gallon of "The Best DP Bait" out there IMO, ADC's Coon Trail Mix.

I had luck using strawberry marshmellows, and strawberry jelly. Its inexpensive and the marshmellows fit like a glove inside the DP.

5 gallon bucket. 2 gal. of corn, 2 gal. dry dog food, and pour some molasses on it. Cover bucket and shake. Instant DP bait.

I like ADC's bait. I'm about to run out though.
Tried CMK I think it's called. It's ground up captain crunch and extra flavoring.
I like a dry bait for a dp myself. I've collected crawfish this year to try and make one, but now mark June is making one with it so I may try it.
I wish ADC would experiment with some other flavors for kicks and giggles.
