Travis has been out a few day scouting and I will be out in the morning to set up some drowner rigs. Kind of like pre setting without the traps.

Just a thought why are you guys using such small boats in the river?

I used the little boat (as I call it) for years and then moved up to the bigger one to hall more gear. I have always trapped by myself and never needed anything bigger. The little boats lets me get back into some of the tail waters that the a bigger boat will not. At times when the wind is blowing hard it could be a little nerving trying to get through the waves.

I have a 15/42 that I use as all purpose boat great for trapping,just don't see the reason to be on the river in anything smaller as I can usually get my rig anywhere I need to be carry on be safe

I could not agree with you more. Life jacket always and no trapping in high flow or high winds. Other then that it like being on any other body of water. Safety first always.
and thank you

I'm running pretty mixed sets conis ,snares, coilsprings.
My plan this weekend is to make a lots more baited pockets (baited with chunked muskrat) and run as many high bank and log crossing snares as I can get in.

What's the deal with the stick in the snare? Beaver coming through with a stick and it got caught? Those Pliers with the Coon sure are clean to be on a trap line. Must be new.

That's a giant stick bug......
Yea beaver got that little stick a long way in before it closed. Was he carrying it by the very end?
Yep new pliars new driver. I bend several drivers a year, and as for pliars I'm worlds worst about not taking care of them so they end up seized up. I saw in a popular machanics years ago you can take a bucket with sand and dump used motor oil in it, then dip your garden utensils cutters, shovels etc, and it would keep them closer to new. I'm not a big believer on motor oil on my trapping tools, but I may try it with some complain oil or the like.

Sure enjoying all the pics. and stories of running the line. Beaver,even though they're back breakers,have always been one of my favorites to catch. Hope to acquire a boat and motor in the next year or two so I can get on the river. Have threatened SD Trapper with going on a run like y'all fellers are doing. Good luck on the 100!
