Having the tarp half out of water is ok, actually it is the law in a lot of states. Research says the mst important thing is that the trigger no show above water, so bend them so they flatten out below water line. (have trigger and dog on bottom)

First be very carefull setting these badboys. Once you get the springs compressed and the trigger set, set in hole. Take some bottom debrie and try and cover trap. dont mess with the trap when it is not visable that means dont go reaching for it unless you can see it. I always run a wire from a safe distance to bull trap up when not visable. If it is freezing there you may want to use leg holds instead. If trap is exposed to the surface the freezing could fire trap or render it useles by not letting it fire your call.
