I use a variety of baits on coon. My standby bait is sardines in oil. The smell really attracts them and it lasts pretty good. I have also had success with marshmellows, vanilla wafers, and apples. Sometimes I also use a little food call lure close to the set to help bring them in. An old time trapper I know also suggested bacon grease. I used it with good success in a live trap this year, but I also caught several house cats. Experiment and good luck.
