Born2trap I dont catch mink myself but my friend does and he uses the pocket set.He uses 1. 5 dukes and makes a pocket baited with suckers or other junk fish.He puts his trap in about an inch of water and he hides it by putting very fine dust on it,this looks like settiment when hes done.I dont think we have many mink here but I could be wrong.If the mink population were better this set would be great.You could also use 110s but u should probably use a belly wire on them.I have read that an experiment was done and a mink walked through a conny 33 time before triggering it.Like I said Im not good at mink yet and dont know alot first hand but I read everyday about trapping methods.I hope this helps and good luck.

The best way to set up your trap for mink is with a hair trigger. I use what is called night latching. Or i will trim the dog down. But this does come with some disadvantages rain will fire traps, frost will fire traps So if you do these things and your trap is fired alot with nothing in it this is why. But if you dont the tension is hard to get just right for mink.

I prefer a pocket set, baited with muskrat or fish remains, guarded with a 1 1/2 coilspring trap in deeper waters, if water is shallow where drowning isnt possible I use a stoploss style trap. Works for me I hope it helps you. :D
