Just curious and if so do you like a heavy castor based lure or a food/curiosity lure for the set?

Yep...I'm all ears as well.

I though it was when you used lure on a tree in the water and put a snare next to it....???

I don't have control of the tv anymore, got a 4 year old living here, spongebob is his hero and i now know more about spongebob, scooby doo, barney and power rangers than i ever wanted to, lol.

My version of a smear set, is to take your boot and just 'smear' a spot on the bank at water's edge, put a few drops of sac oil on the smear and set a large foothold trap under the water under it. Great set for spooked beaver that won't fool with snares or conibears.
