I assume you are targeting rats and beaver.

How long does your season last?

Looking forward to seeing pictures.

Good luck!

Floats work well when you have fluctuating water levels,they have their place you will have some refusals or they will climb from the side and back.Floats will keep you going when you cant keep regular castor mound/bait sets going guessing on rising and falling water depths.

The night before last our river came up 4-5 feet, itís a big watershed, that should have been our big one,water should start to recede now, it was flowing in the boat launch yesterday, hard to launch boat when itís that high.

Me too but I also use some poplar bud oil. It has a much stronger odor then the rat all call. And I also use a chunk of parsnip or apple as bait.

Nice thread, still some snow on Tug Hill and in the ADKís but you are probably right most of the spring melt is gone.
