    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,
  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.
