The trap fairly clean in water, just dry off with put dry bait inside, I don't like messy paste bait to much but maybe if dry pellets would get wet

It wouldn't hurt to quick dry the inside of the trap with an old towel or something, but I wouldn't worry about getting it completely dry. The pellets might soak up a little moisture but not enough to hurt anything.

If you're setting by the water especially, you are missing out not using that Payback Bait in them DPs. It'll be easy to rinse out the traps when you pull them.

I've never dried out a dp before rebaiting it. There isn't enough water left after slinging out the old bait to hurt anything.

I think a dp on a slider would work fine.I don't think it would be much different than a foothold on a slider.

It work better in places where can't check in morning , some farmers with cattle not real far away out field might not like sound gunfire under bridge, I set few these bfore, on sliders, not lot , sone places are very hard make pockets because rock, flat sandy bank, I am into pockets an main set an like catch mink, may be up just a little more this season on mink, not lot, I read fur fish game that coon prices be very depressed except bigger ones from good areas with heavy coon, maybe later sales, coon are main thing trap here. Live coon under bridge on sand, not always but often need have complete pelt wash real good after akin an dry for hrs , without tumbler, , even then u never get all sand out, pretty messy hides on land under bridge alot times in loose sand or whatever soul if loose

Again you need to be using that wet sticky bait you got in those rocky/cement areas. Just smear a little on the rock side facing the water at the edge of the creek, set your trap in front of it and collect your coon the next day.

Also this...
