Hi guys,

Just bought a minnow trap. Gonna go after some freshwater bass with live shiners. I know how the trap works, but just had a couple of questions i was hopin someone could answer:

- What do i put in the trap to attract them? Raw chicken? Bread? Does it even really matter? Was going to use chicken livers but they tend to attract a lot of snapping turtles.

- How much time should I allow for the minnows to get in there? Was thinking of just setting the trap at the spot I'll be fishing the night before I'm going. Wasn't sure if that was too much time...

~Thanks

Ok, so i tried the dog food, but it just floated right out of the trap soon as it hit the water (FYI my trap is one of those cheap yellow plastic ones). I had some frozen porgies in the freezer so i used some twine and tied one to the inside of the trap and tied a 5 oz sinker on as well. I'll go back and check it tonight
