Rusty Jones sells a bait called 'LUCKY'. It's ground, fresh Beaver meat, paste like.
You don't necessarily need Beaver Meat to catch a Fisher. I found them to be like a large, black Possum that will eat anything or work most lures.

You absolutely don't need beaver meat. The fishers I have caught have been in all varieties of sets, including some sets without any bait, just flat sets with lures. Here is a trail cam series of videos I had set up on a natural rock cubby. You can see the fishers coming back to pull out all varieties of bait I had in there. The order in which they took the carcasses out were...


rabbit
mink
muskrat
deer
pheasant
squirrel
possum

Take that for what you will. Its possible another individual fisher would have chosen its meals in different orders.

Why don't you go out now and shoot some groundhogs and butcher them?

When you are up to your butt in alligators, it is hard to remember your intent was to drain the swamp. Stay focused!

Don't waste beaver meet on Fisher, put it in the skillet! Use your unwanted scraps for Fisher.

One of my best friends thinks beaver meat is some of the best there is. He ages it and cooks it like beef. I have never tasted it I don't trap beaver.

A Staple

Early frontiers trappers lived on beaver & didn't complain either.

Iíve eaten beaver steak and backstraps several times. Itís very mild ,tender and is good for grilling. I believe that beaver that get whacked with a 330 or drowned arenít as good as one you come across that is alive in the trap. The ones I had to shoot bled out and I think it made for better eating. Or it all just be my imagination, as we bleed out all our walleyes we catch.
