    Hello I am new to this list and just had a few questions about minnow traps.
    What do you bait with and where do you place them and for how long? Thank you in advance for your reply!

    Best Regards,
    Chris
     
  2. I usually just ball up a piece of bread and toss it in a creek where I have seen minnows and chubs swimming around. then I come back the next day and pick it up. I just did this last week and overnight I caught 8 minnows and 4 chubs.
     

  3. I also place them in small streams but I use one fresh stick of gum. I got this tip from field and stream and it really works. I have caught over 3 doz. minnows in just two days by using gum.
