You can use bait but most guys on here will tell you to positive set it with your cage. Make a funnel of some sort to enclose end of cage so direct over the hole. A "nose cone" woodchuck comes out bam gets caught. Ideally use a double door Comstock trap and can leave both ends open is my ideal set. if you search woodchucks in the search bar theres a lot of posts covering this.

I agree with NW above.

If you are going to do this as part of a business, buy Comstock 9x11x18 double door traps with nosecones. They increased my catch rate.

They love sweets, apples bits with sugar work good.
Pre chum the area with a small amount to get their attention , do not over feed.
Then place the trap with a couple treats on the trail and a piece behind the trigger pan
Smaller traps will have lighter triggers, but run whatcha got

A 160 in their hole works wonders.
