hhmm lets see,dirt hole set will take them this time of year(some call it a crawdad hole for them) and a fishstick set works well for them too. pvc set works real well or a real well made canine set (cant keep them out of mine) seems to take them every time...lol good luck and let us know how you do

What is the fishstick set and the PVC set? I was talking to a friend last night, and he is looking through his garage for all of the 220's he has. He used to trap just to keep pests down around his house, and has quite a few traps that he said I could HAVE! I think that sounds pretty good to me. I can't wait to get some traps out, the only thing is I would have to get up earlier, and mornings like this that's not easy :(

I've used the fishstick method with great success. Get a 3' dowel and hammer it into the ground in shallow (2") water. Take a head of carp or a tail or a good sized chunk and spear it ontop of the stick or dowel. Then set your two traps underneath just under the water. You don't have to cover them up.

How far do you drive the dowel into the water?

Enough to hold the fish up out of immediate coon reach. So if you have a 3' dowel, you can drive it down 6-8 inches.

And rebar would work instead of a dowel right??
I wish I would have kept some of the asian carp that jumped into my boat this year. Would have been a good use for them
