yes. But I myself have yet to catch one. I've only been trapping for a couple of years now. But in the past, my boyfriend whom I trap with has caught fisher. We only have seven traps right now. 3 footholds and 4 110's

That muskrat set is simple yet very effective. Caught another 'rat today.(still gotta put pics on). It was a very productive set last year as well

nice swamp puppy. I have yet to catch a stripped bass. I haven't really done much stripped bass fishing (though I do love to open water fish and ice fish). Though my boyfriend has done a lot of stripped bass fishing and caught many. One day he caught over 40. That was in the Medomak River.
Eustice is aways from here. Late september and early october, we went on a moose hunt up north. We were in Masardis. He got a bull moose permit and I was his sub-permitee. :D Maybe I'll have to put some pics of that up.

deffinantly post some pics of your moose hunt. there are a ton of them up around that part of maine. i have been hunting and jumped 4 or 5 big bulls at a time and seen like 15 in a week. ice fishing is a blast and so is stripped bass fishing. i have only done a little in maine but i have done a lot in cape cod. my biggest so far was a 32 pounder i caught on light wieght spinning tackle with 12 pound test. you gotta try it.

I'll put my moose pics up on Mug Shots. Yea there are a ton up there, but of course when we went up we didn't see any (except for dead ones) until the one we got. It was some exciting. Saw a ton of partridge, but left before bird season started.
Yea I gotta do more striped bass fishing, my boyfriend loves it. Now I'm waiting for the ice to come. Either last or the christmas before, my boyfriend got me a bunch of ice fishing stuff, there's this jig rod he got that I love. Relaxing to take a break and jig, I seem to have good luck with it.
....So i'm gonna go put the pics up then
