Hey guys so I have been using plain old tuna and marshmellows and my catch rate has been mediocre. Any baits you guys would recommend to a newbie? Thanks

Marshmallow, dry cat food. Corn, bird seed, tinfoil, the list is endless with coons. They'll go for about anything. Heck I've even used banana extract poured onto a paper towel.

Sweet baits work better in the fall and protein bait comes on in January as breeding time approaches.

Big white marshmallows at my house for quick and easy. Leave a couple on the ground for starters and get their sweet tooth activated.

I use strictly dry cat food! Caught about 30 coons with it

I have had good luck with catfish food sprayed down with some liquid smoke and cherry oil.

I use either horse grain or kids cereal. It keeps a lot of the not targets from messing with the traps.

Fish based cat food with a marshmallow on top and then if I have any fried fish oil I will trail it around the trap.

I was going to say fish food, shaken in a five gallon bucket with Beast Feast.

The big fat Marshmallows worked real well for me a few years ago when I had problems with coons getting into my daughter's chickens.

Dry catfood, shellcorn, molasses, and calf milk replacer. A marshmallow on the trigger.

Mix the dry ingredients and then add the molasses to just get it to stick together a little bit.

Dobbins Coon Candy can't be beat as an attractor. They will not walk by it and you can get it on Amazon

We used to use canned sardines. But that is expensive over time. Dry cat food and maybe a drizzle of shellfish oil works great for us now.
