In a pond? Hitman may be best option. Hard to trap in a pond.

Good news is that otter brought $20 to $30 at the Arkansas fur sale today. I was hearing reports of 10 dollars earlier in the season. I figured they were about to get really thick if they had bottomed out that much.

I know the feeling. Got a bobcat I get about once a week on camera. Can't get it to work my sets for nothing.  Hanging attractors, flashy dirtholes, even tried some cat litter for a toilet set. Might help if I didn't have so many possums around plugging my sets.  Hammer Punch   I think I've taken around 30 to 35 grinners out so far. With it being so warm this last week of season I'm not expecting much predator action.

Trapper I know you are probably better at this than me, but have you tried a steel trap under a car rim. Throw some bait under the rim and set your trap wright under the center hole, might work for you.

No I had not heard of that set for bobcat. Will keep It in my files for sure. Thanks for sharing.


Lost, beaver meat is one of the best cat baits.

I use sand bass ribs. Other bait would work.

I've got a family of them that roams up and down the creeks and branches around here, they live on the creeks, but use ponds like buffets as they pass through. I've been after them for years, but they don't stay very long in one place. Very seldom see them, usually just tracks, slides and fish carcasses. They will clean out a pond. They're quite a few of them around here, I see them on the Cadron Creek a lot, 5 or 6 in a bunch usually.
