Looks like great fishing deerfly, are they still catching big crappies on Red, or is that done? Caught a few big northerns up there, but that was almost twenty years ago. Time flies... Caught 10 rats today in my played out line, was setting traps all day so didnt check all traps, gotta keep pushing w the decent weather.

We had hoar frost like I never seen before on Monday, but we have had several days of it and some yet today. We took some nice photos that we can put together. Pulled today my 3 sets. No rats and ice was worse today and we are going above freezing again today. Going to size my rats this weekend, that will help us decide better when and where to market them. I have a lot of xl and smaller 2xl rats so I need to find the place that does not discount as much for those sizes.

Yup covered in rime frost up here, too. twenty three rats and a female mink today, didnt get out till past midday, so just checked line I had out, didnt set new ground. Starting in a new marsh, same lake tomorrow, it will be nice to not be running the same trail. Lots of deep water pushups w no platforms, but I guess thats the way she goes...

Skratmandoo, good numbers, I am a bit less then half that. Di size mine all up today and had 8% 3xl, 34% 2xl, 45% xl, 8 % L and 5% medium and down. Will see how that holds when we sell. Not many really big rats in my collection. Same with trapper I sized with today. He has several more and quite a few more to put up.

Such nice weather the last few weeks. Checked otter traps on either end of our marsh, noticed coyotes came thru and were working pretty good in the cattails so hung some cable on the ice for the first time. See how this goes. Any advice on how I hung the CRs would be appreciated.

Forever in debt to my Father who introduced me to trapping.

Looks decent. alex the dog, I see those coyote pinch points all the time when Im trapping winter rats, but I cant multi task.., one thing ive heard and would def adhere by if I was setting CR's, dont set them in a straight away part of the trail, try to set them in corners or curves of trails so they dont have time to be wary... And make some shortcuts for em. And thx bblwi, I would say six hundred are under ice rats... I've got 14 triple x's stretched, at this point.
