which muskrat sets for side of stream?

Found 2 muskrat toilets on the side of a medium stream, how do i set traps here? theres not really a lane thats used to get there so do i set a couple of footholds as blind sets around these toilets?

little lure,or apple,or just put a trap in front of the pocket,curiosity will get them caught.also in a case like that i would just wire my trap to a weight in the water,they drown very easily.no slider needed.

I like Apples cut up into small pieces and then have a little anise seed mixed in....helps to get the attention of coons that are working the area also!
