I put a big container of eggs on the roof of my shed to sit in the sun. I'm going to see how much I can rot things down and make homemade baits and lures. I was thinking about making some fish oil or trying to make use of fish I catch this summer.

Remember coyotes donít tend to like stinky loud bait as well as a fresh bait.


Trapping is what built North America, why take that away?

I donít make a lot of bait- but keep this in mind. When rotting down baits in the sun, gasses from the material breaking down will start to form in your jars. If you donít let the pressure out, they will explode. You have to find a way to release the gas that builds up, but also keeping it sealed tight to keep flies out. Good luck!

I agree with Jackson. No stinky rotten crud; you will catch 10x more predators on fresh and not so rank lures and baits.

I was thinking of trying both this year. Last year I used just fresh bait and not really any tainted bait and I wanted to expand my knowledge some on the animals reactions. Ill keep that in mind though.

Anthony, that also depends on your climate. I would say yes to fresh for you, but for me I think tainted baits work decent too.

When its cold in the north country,tainted baits reach out a lot better than fresh.
