Looking for a good bait or lure, maybe something made in the south, using footholds on a semi-steep bank with drowning rods, Thanks

 I like beaver plus through January and you could peel a few willow sticks and lay above trap on bank if they grow there. My 2 cents.

My two favorite baits for beaver are sweet gum and willow.  I take an arm sized, FRESH piece and stick it behind the set.  I peel the front like a carrot and leave anything peeled away hanging off of it. 


Honey is a proven beaver attractor, and Iíve been known to squirt a little raw honey behind a set.


Of course proven commercial lures are good, beaver plus as mentioned is an excellent lure.  You can also make your own very easily.  There are many recipes available online. I like glycerin with castor, and I donít make a lure that doesnít have OIL in it.  Mineral oil is my favorite for lure making.  I donít care for a dry lure, I like it kinda sloppy so the lure runs a little when I splash water on the set before leaving.



These are all attractors, but nothing makes up for location.  I want a place that sticks out, and, if possible, on the side of the drainage that the prevailing wind will carry the scent when beavers swim past.
Good luck
