    Is it better to set traps in the day time or after sunset? I have tried at night and from 15 minutes to over an hour and not caught a one? Apparently my location is poorly picked? lol

    A good lesson is learned.

    We used to use bread when I was a youngster trapping minnows from our farm ponds. Then found that sliced onions proved to be much better. We always set traps near dusk pitching one deep and another in close to the bank. Leaving them in overnight for the most part. Never tried to trap from streams.

    We used to put a wire in the middle of our trap and thread a canned biscuit on the wire after putting the biscuit in the microwave for a few seconds to toughen it up. I have heard about the sliced onion trick but have never tried it.

    I suspect daytime is better trapping,but don’t limit yourself,you can’t catch them if the traps in the truck!
