    Back when quarantine started all the local bait shops closed down and I started using a seine in some tiny creeks to catch minnows. Hard work at first, but I've got the technique down better now. I can actually catch 4 dozen minnows in LESS time than it would take me to drive out to the bait shop. They're bigger and livelier too.

    What's the best bait to put in a trap? I've tried dog food with no luck and only catch baby bluegill and crawdads on bread.

    Thx,
    Chris

    We used to put a can biscuit in the microwave for just a few seconds to toughen it up a bit then put it in the cone minnow trap. Worked good for us,hope it helps you.

    I use cattle cubes in my wire traps for minnows and crawdads.

    Basic minner trap with old bread in a minner populated area always works for me.
