I've tried everything under the sun, including muskrat glands. What your favorite thing ( Lure) to spice things up besides Carrots, Corn, Apple or Potato?

I put about 2 ounces each of sweet flag, cherry, moonshine and melt down some cheap mint type hard candy and add some fish oil to make a quart. Good for coons too. I only use rat lure on my river line and shelf type feed beds. I have never used bait other then in body grippers under the ice for rats.

Hard to beat Lenon's. Been a proven rat lure for years.

Don't sell your rat lure short boss. I have used your lure and lennons side by side and see no difference.

Popular bud oil Is very good along with Hudson seal. Not sure you can even get Hudson's seal anymore.

Backwater baits is handling Maraks of Iowa lure. I use #2 Rat early season, then #4 mid December through the end of season in the marshes and ditches. Some guys swear by just throwing some bottom debris on the side of a hut, but I like the lure to draw them to the set location by the sheen on the water. I didn't get that with some other lures out there. Good luck.

I don't trap a lot of rats but the lure I use when I do is Lennon's and Dobbin's. Go every other set hop scotch the two.

Not to hijack the post...but does a commercial rat lure actually improve catch success? I ask this in honest ignorance as I have barely used it (primarily use colony traps) and when I did I just found it to be a raccoon collector.
Is there a time of year it's more effective? Are they as lure responsive as beaver?
For the record, I have tried bread and butter from MTP and a Hawbakers rat lure only so very little experience with lure as noted above


Just happy to be here.

Backwater Baits make a lot of great lures and baits. Bruce and his staff are great people to do business with too.

So the rat trapper sets ONE trap at a toilet and ONE trap at a feed bed. But We all know that there are more then ONE rat using those spots. So I make at least 2 lured sets close to those toilets and feed beds. So the rat trapper making one set Is only catching ONE rat while the beav may be catching 3 rats.
Same with trapping huts. WE all set that one trap at the pull outs on the house. But I'm going to make at least 2 or 3 lured sets + the pull out on that house. 4 rats are better then 1.

Any of Carmans lures are top notch. I just wish it was offered in a 4 oz jar.
