Besides beaver and muskrat, what have you used?

A fisher is an opportunistic predator/scavenger that will eat virtually anything; berries, birds and eggs, fish and of coarse MEAT. Besides the productive beaver I prefer moose or deer.


The only constant in trapping is change so keep learning.

I called the fish and wildlife and asked if I could pick up the road kill squirrels and use them for fischer bait. They said no problem. So that is what I'm trying this year have always used beaver in the past. I was thinking the squirrels would work and why not try them. I have them frozen and not gutted. I hope the eye appeal and common prey will trigger the fischer to rush in. I also use a gusto near it.


The bitterness of poor quality last a lot longer than the sweetness of low price

Fishers do prey on squirrells but if your setting in high squirrell location you will attract a lot of squirrells if you use them for bait.
That may not be a problem,depending on the trap you use.

It is similar to using muskrat for bait at a mink set-you will catch muskrats as well as mink.

As I said in my previous post "A fisher is an opportunistic predator/scavenger that will eat virtually anything." Thus, if you are on LOCATION with most any bait, success should not be a problem.
