Lets see if I can get this right, at least in my thought. The bottom edge set is where a 110 conni is set up under and on the bottom of undercut creek/river banks. No bait, no lure. It's actually a blind set so to speak. Have caught majority of my mink using it. Works also for otter and beaver as well.

I will tell you this it sounds like a set i use except I use a no 1 coil spring trap. I will take 2 six inch sticks and push them into the under cut bank. About three inches deep and then i will set the no 1 on the sticks that i leave sticking out of bank. Ive caught a lot of rats and mink this way. I dont know if you have tried this or not but I would say you would like this. Besure to use a rock for weight to drown the rat or mink. Thanks for explaining that to me I thought i was missing out.

I just started trapping last year and even though I have seen mink on the creek I am trapping while deer hunting, I can't get them to go in the trap.

I have 110's set as mentioned above, tucked up in and around the roots just above the water. I also have a couple of #11 in front of pocket sets at the water edge with either mink lure or a muskrat leg in the pocket and nothing after two weeks except for one raccoon, one muskrat (thats where the legs came from) and a squirel last night.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The #110 in the bottom edge set is set underwater, on the bottom and right up against the bank.

I recently discovered a faint trail along a steep creek bank,it was in the mud under the water. Placed a 110 in the trail made the fence with sticks so far 5 rats and 1 mink. First time I have used a set like this, and I've been kicking myself for all the years that I didn't.... :x
