I had very little success trapping a couple decent sized creeks over the thanksgiving holiday. It was rather warm with temps 65-35 degrees, but it seemed like the coons did not move. I put out many traps (30 total), but only ended up with 3 coons in a week of trapping. They were caught in LIL Griz dogproof traps baited with sardines. My pockets, cubbies, and pvc pipe sets were untouched! WHY DIDNT I CATCH MORE COONS? ANY ADVICE?

Here in TN I found the same thing with the warmer temps the coons didn't seem to move. But I'm leaving my sets because it is going to be in the 20's for the lows by the end of the week. Maybe with the colder temps they will move a little more.

Me too but last night it cooled a little and drizzled most of the night. I thought the change would be good and it was. I caught three on my 12 trap line. The most in one night this year.

My heart goes out to ya. :( There has been no action here at all, Erie Pa. and they havent been after the mussels nor the junk that washes around. The only catch we did have was at one of those PVC set-ups. We where being robbed of bait before until we used the 2" pvc thing. The conditions have been splended. I will watch your post to see how your making out and borrow some ideas.
1 raccon, 7 reds, ((28 grinnies on a prefered brand name call bait :roll: ))For fox and raccoon bait

rescout the area make sure you are setting on sign.i keep it real simple when trapping coons useing pretty much a dirt hole set with them(crawdad hole) and a foothold. i pretty much have only really used a fishoil type lure with them and done real well back when i trapped alot of coon unsure of the weather down there now but if its real cold they may be getting ready to den up,most of the time a warm spell here will get them moving real good and mild cold weather will keep them that way

I'd watch your line real close in the next couple of days, we've got a freeze-up coming and you might see some action just before the real cold hits.
